Event: Holy Hikes Annual Zoocharist at the Oakland Zoo

Holy Hikes Annual Zoocharist at the Oakland Zoo

Join us for our annual Zoocharist at the Oakland Zoo!!! We will meet at 9:45am sharp outside the Oakland Zoo and enter as a group. We will begin at 10:00am at the flamingos. Please allow at least two hours (or more) for this adventure since we will take our time meandering through the zoo. As usual, we will celebrate the Holy Eucharist along the way, hearing readings, offering prayers, and concluding with Communion. Please RSVP if you plan on coming.


Please note there is a $10 parking fee per car, so don’t hesitate to use the Holy Hikes Facebook group to arrange carpooling. Tickets prices for the Oakland Zoo are $20 for Children (2-14) and Seniors (65-75) and $24 for Adults (15-64). Children under 2 and Seniors over 76 are free. Parking is $10 per car. Holy Hikes can cover fees for individuals who cannot afford the entry fee.


Although some of the pathways are steep and may be challenging, the Oakland Zoo is wheel-chair and stroller accessible. While the Zoo generally prohibits any non-zoo animals from entering the Zoo and park grounds, exceptions are made for individuals with disabilities who bring their service animals to the Zoo
