This year Southwick’s Zoo is celebrating 50 years as one of New England’s favorite
destinations. The zoo’s humble beginnings trace back to the 1930’s with Justin
Southwick’s collection of exotic birds. The collection began to attract visitors, so he
placed a donation box at the entrance of his farm in 1956. Southwick Wild Animal Farm
Inc. was incorporated in 1965. Over the years Southwick’s Zoo has grown to become
New England’s largest zoological experience. Southwick’s is celebrating all season long
with monthly events. All events, excluding EARTH Bash and the evening concerts, are
included with normal zoo admission rates.
