There are few things better than a summer evening in Portland, and your zoo has the perfect park setting to make the most of it. On select Tuesdays, you can eat dinner outdoors from local food carts, sample great Oregon beers, listen to live music and let your kids run around or try crafty activities—all while hanging out with crepuscular creatures such as lions, tigers and bears.

Admission is only $9 per person after 4 p.m., and free for zoo members. The carousel and train will be offering rides for an additional charge. Zoo gates will close at 8 p.m. (instead of the standard summer hours of 6 p.m.), with grounds being open until 9 p.m.

Live music: Yuma de Cuba
