Dinner with Santa at the Zoo | Kids Out and About St. Louis

Dinner with Santa at the Zoo

Bring the whole family for a festive holiday experience at the Zoo. Your joeys will jump for joy as they meet Santa and his holiday helpers, and you’ll be in a merry mood with complimentary parking and a delicious meal. Reservations are limited, so reserve your spot soon!

Dinner Menu

Relish an exquisite Italian dinner buffet. Baked cannelloni with red and white sauce, chicken parmesan, meatballs in red sauce, Italian sausage and peppers, tri-color tortellini with mixed vegetables and pesto, seasoned green beans, garlic parmesan toast, Italian and Caesar salads, assorted desserts and beverages comprise this delectable smorgasbord.

The event takes place in The Living World. Each private table will be dressed with linen and china.

Bonus Feature

Meet costumed characters Rudolf, Frosty and Jolly Old Saint Nick during dinner. Knowing that it doesn't quite feel like the holidays without gift giving, Santa will present a treat to children and admission to Wild Lights* (including Conservation Carousel and 4D Theater) with free parking for the whole family. 5 p.m. guests can enjoy the lights after dinner, and 7 p.m. guests are encouraged to enjoy the lights before dinner.

*Weather permitting.
