2023 is nearly here and with it? One of the city’s cutest events! Smile and wave, because the annual Penguin walk at the Calgary Zoo will return this January and it’ll be cuter than ever.

Set to kick off on Friday the 13th, the Calgary Zoo has confirmed that its waddle of king penguins will take to their pathways again this winter – and though we can’t promise warm hands, we can guarantee warm hearts.

While this event is dependent on the weather, guests will be encouraged to visit the in-city destination at 10:30 am for a daily parade unlike any other.
