Come celebrate International Tiger Day with the big cats at Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary! Enjoy a fun-filled day of tigers, music, food and so much more! This event is one of our biggest fundraiser of the year & 100% of the proceeds go back to the sanctuary to care for the animals. Gates open at 10am and close at 2pm. Admission is $10 at the door, kids 3 and under are free. Tickets can also be purchased in advance online for $10/person.

During the day you can meet a tiger keeper, watch the cats receive special themed enrichment and visit one of the many vendors on site that day. Kids will have a blast playing the carnival/conservation games, having their face painted, creating their own “paw” painting, tiger themed story times and so much more! This is fun for the whole family!

Every year we have a different theme for the enrichment that we put into the habitats. Come out and watch the cats as they sniff, tear and destroy their enrichment. Enrichment is a critical part of keeping our cats happy and healthy and IT Day is when they get the most!

We only offer this opportunity twice a year so don’t miss out!

Lunch will be available for purchase from Roxy’s Hot Grill! We will also have snow cones, and other baked goods for dessert! Drinks will be available!
