Toledo Zoo Offers Festive Feast Dining Experience

Posted Nov 26th, 2014 by Andi Norman  Category: Events,


Visitors to this year’s Lights Before Christmas, presented by KeyBank, have a shining opportunity: a Festive Feast holiday buffet served in the Zoo’s historic Lodge, which has been lavishly transformed into a holiday lodge.

The Festive Feast is available on most Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 6 – 8:30 p.m. Dec. 1-17. Each Festive Feast includes family-friendly crafts, an encounter with a Zoo animal, a photo with Santa, and Lights Before Christmas admission after 5 p.m. Selected evenings also feature Laurel’s Princess Parties or a visit with Ellie the Elf and Mrs. Claus.

The menu features a top round carving station, baked penne marinara, glazed baby carrots, mashed potatoes, salad and assorted breads, holiday cookies and pirouette chocolate cake. Children’s menu options are available by advance request. Assorted beverages are provided (including the Zoo’s famous hot chocolate), and holiday spirits are available to adults for an extra charge.

This year, in addition to over a million lights and 200+ illuminated animal images, Lights visitors are enjoying the live reindeer and warming fires of the new winter village, sponsored by Taylor Automotive Family. The highlight of the winter village is a new outdoor ice slide that coasts along the natural slope of the Zoo’s historic Amphitheatre.

Advance reservations and payment are required for the Festive Feast; walk-ins are allowed only if space is available. The cost is $35 for adults and $25 for children ages 2 – 11. For more information, visit or call 419.385.5721, ext. 6001.
