Portland Concerts at the Oregon Zoo 2009

Portland Concerts at the Oregon Zoo 2009

Concerts at the Oregon Zoo are quintessential summertime events. You can come early and enjoy the zoo, and then dance the night away in this beautiful outdoor setting.   Tickets for the 2009 season go on sale April 24 (earlier for members and e-news subscribers). Purchase them online or call TicketMaster at (503) 244-4400.

All seats are general admission, but you can now get “Blanket Reservations” and VIP Upgrades, which will alleviate having to wait in long lines on the night of the show. Wiggy would enjoy a blanket reservation.
