(EDIT) The 2022 event has sold out.

Last year the Ellen Trout Zoo's annual Princess and the Frog Tea Party became a scavenger hunt due to Covid 19. They continued the tradition even though they had to modify it.

This year the tea party is going to be done the way it was originally intended. A tea party for all princesses and royalty 12 years old and under while accompanied by an adult.

There will be a sit-down tea party with a light meal, games, crafts, and activities all geared toward learning about our froggy friends at Ellen Trout Zoo In Lufkin.

When the zoo first started this event it was one tea for 50 kids. Then it grew to three on two separate days with 60 kids or more in each one. Due to high demand, there will now be four different days that you can experience this event with your children.


The tea will be held at the Ellen Trout Zoo education building. This is the first building on the right side when entering Zoo Circle. The activities are recommended for children 3-12 years old.
