50th Anniversary Party

26th May

Join us on Sunday 26th May to celebrate Newquay Zoo's 50th Anniversary!

50th Anniversary Party

This year is a very special year for Newquay Zoo. On May 26th it will have been 50 years since the zoo officially opened its doors back in 1969.

Newquay began as a small petting zoo and has since evolved into a conservation research and education charity, dedicated to the protection of animals, plants and their environment, both locally and internationally.

Our Anniversary Party

To commemorate such a significant occasion, we want to invite you to our very special celebration party which will be held on Sunday 26th May from 10:00am until 5:00pm.

Expect 60's themed live music, games, activities, face painting, BBQ food, themed enrichment for our animals, special talks and much more. An event not to be missed.

At the party you can take a stroll down memory lane with our eye opening 50th Anniversary Exhibition. The exhibition will lead you through our unique journey over the past 5 decades to the zoo we have evolved into today. Plus, you can pick up our FREE 'Then and Now' trail to spot the visual differences to the zoo over the years.

Please note: there will be additional charges for some of the activities held on the day.
