Santa Ana Zoo Summer Concert Series

The Santa Ana Zoo’s after-hours “Sunsets at the Zoo” & summer concert series are back by popular demand. Sponsored by Guaranty Chevrolet of Santa Ana, the Zoo’s first after-hours summer concert and brew-tasting event will take place Sunday, June 30th at 5:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the gate on the night of the event.

Summer Event at the Santa Ana zoo

In addition to enjoying live music from local artists and bands under the California sky, Sunsets at the Zoo offers a unique, after-hours experience to see the Home of the 50 Monkeys’ animal residents prepare for their evening activities. Guests may also purchase tickets to ride the Zoofari Express Train, 50 Monkey Ferris Wheel, and Conservation Carrousel that evening when the lines are shorter.

During the event, guests can take part in a silent auction and craft brew-tasting experience from a handful of Orange County’s finest craft beer brewers (additional charge, valid ID required). Zoo members and guests are encouraged to bring their cameras, pack a picnic or purchase food items at the outdoor concert in the park. All proceeds raised this year will go towards upgrading the primate habitats at the Zoo!
