Wild Days are here at last at the Abilene Zoo and just in time for the 2021 Spring Break. Families from all around the Big Country are invited to come and take in all the sights that Abilene Zoo has to offer. And, the Excelsior Foundation plans on making it even more fun by getting you involved with all the wild animals that will be performing all sorts of wild stunts and tricks.

There will be shows daily that will feature and highlight the craziest tricks some of the wildlife will be performing. So come prepared to be called out of the audience to come and participate with real life wild animals on stage.

This is a very unique open-air experience with lots of room for everyone to roam around AT the Abilene Zoo. So get ready to have some real fun with some truly wild animals during Wild Days.
