Thank You Zoo Knoxville for once again supporting the Mission of Hope!

Zoo Knoxville is offering free wristbands good for unlimited carousel and train rides with the donation of an item supporting the Mission of Hope. 

The “Cans for Wristbands” drive runs now through Nov. 25.  Guests who bring a donation item will receive their free wristband, (a $10 value) with the purchase of a general admission ticket. Members and annual passholders also receive a free wristband with a donation. Wristbands are also good for a 10% discount on purchases in the Zoo Shop, and members and annual passholders can use this in addition to their regular 15% discount. Wristbands are valid for the day of donation.

Items needed are non-perishable food items, hygiene items, and new children’s toys. For more information about the types of items needed, go to our website at https://missionofhope.org/christmas-collection-delivery/.   

Zoo general admission tickets are $19.95 for adults, $16.95 for children ages 4-12 and seniors age 65 and up. Children ages 3 and under are free. Parking is $5 per vehicle. Tickets can be purchased online at zooknoxville.org or at the zoo’s ticket window. Please present donations at the zoo’s ticket window to receive wristbands.
