CritterFest June 23-26 10am-6pm Daily

Lubbock’s most popular annual animal event is back again this June! Nowhere else in town can you see elephants, alligators, crocodiles, bears, camels, giant tortoises, big snakes, and tons of other cool animals as the Science Spectrum literally turns into a Zoo for four days. Awesome and amazing animal acts, as well as the extremely popular petting zoo, pony and camel rides, along with many other animals on display continue to make this event a hit for the whole family!

Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Rosaire’s Bears and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment. Rosaire’s Bears is an educational live bear act that will astound audiences with the beauty and intelligence of these amazing animals. Crocodile Encounters is an educational reptile show that will introduce you to American alligators, Nile crocodiles, and a variety of other awesome reptiles in order to educate the public about conserving these often misunderstood animals. Both shows are always a huge hit with audiences of all ages!
