Four ‘Bear-Y-Good’ reasons to Save this Date! (Tuesday June 19, 2018 7:30 – 10 AM)

A special TMAC AB & NWT morning event hosted by the Calgary Zoo

You are invited to join the Calgary Zoo for a special morning with its giant pandas — four ‘bear-y-good’ reasons to wake up early and head to the zoo's Panda Passage.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet before your visit, and while you chew, learn why giant pandas are so critically important and well, extremely cute! After munching, you'll be treated to a private tour of the new space, and a chance to spend time with the pandas enjoying their morning routine.

You are welcome to stay on at the Zoo after this morning experience with the pandas. Please note that this invite is non-transferable.

Your Schedule for Tuesday, June 19:

7:30 AM: Arrive at zoo and check in at Security in the Administrative lot or at Guest Relations at the north gate. Proceed across the zoo to the zoo tent for your breakfast.

7:45 AM: Welcome panda talk and buffet breakfast.

8:30 AM: Walk to Panda Passage and enjoy the four giant pandas. The Zoo’s Visitor Experience guide will give you a tour of the new space.

9 - 10 AM: Feel free to stay and enjoy the pandas!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

If driving to the event, please park in the Calgary Zoo's Administrative parking lot, which is at the south of the island, connected to the 12 St. bridge. It is accessible though Inglewood across the 12 St. bridge, or from the zoo turnoff on Memorial eastbound. If parking in the North parking lot with zoo guests, please use the parking code #10708. Public transit is also available for the event. Guests can take the C-Train blue line North towards Saddletowne, and disembark at Zoo Station, which is connected to the entrance to the Calgary Zoo.

Where will the event take place?

The event itself will begin in the zoo tent on our west lawn on the zoo island. After breakfast concludes, the zoo tour guide will lead the group to the new Panda Passage building for an official tour and panda time. It is recommended that you wear comfortable footwear, as walking will be required.

Cost: TMAC Members in good standing (free); non TMAC members $40.+ Eventbrite service fee ($2.39)
