ZooTunes Concert Series 2024 @ Woodland Park Zoo 

See concerts 🐅 Save animals

📆 Sunday, June 16th – Wednesday, August 21st
🎟 Individual tickets available here
📍 Woodland Park Zoo: 5500 Phinney Ave N, Seattle

For 40 yearsWoodland Park Zoo has welcomed fans to a summer concert series on the lawn. ZooTunes is more than a show. It’s a fundraiser for the zoo’s upkeep and its educational and conservation programs like Living Northwest, an effort that works to promote human-wildlife coexistence. (And also to protect endangered species like the Oregon silverspot butterfly. Bet you didn’t realize listening to a band could do all that.)

Shows take place in the zoo’s north meadow. General admission is first-come, first-served festival-style seating. Children two and under are free. ZooTunes often becomes a family affair due to the ability to pack your own food. However, local food trucks are on-site for those who want to splurge. And in true PNW style, all shows are held rain or shine—or heat or smoke! 

Some dates like The RootsViolent Femmes, and Norah Jones have already sold out—but you’re in luck. The following shows still have seats as of March 11th:
