Coloring Contest Winners 2024

It is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of our recent coloring contest featuring Bingo and Rocky, our blue and gold macaws! We received so many submissions that it was very challenging to decide. After much discussion, we have chosen six young artists, three in each age group, plus a Grand Prize winner in each age group. Congratulations to all the winners!

We want to thank all the young artists who participated in our coloring contest. It was truly inspiring to see such a variety of styles and ideas to coloring Bingo and Rocky.

The Animals would love to see you.
Come visit us!

The Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary is located at 403 Stafford Street, Folsom, California, in the heart of the City of Folsom. Operating since 1963, the zoo has been the home to hundreds of animals from squirrels and deer to bobcats and bears.

Each year the zoo welcomes over 100,000 visitors in a simple and unassuming park like environment. With close to 100 animals and adjacent to Lions Park (featuring tables, BBQ’s and children’s play areas) and the Folsom Valley (mini-scale) Railway, not to mention City Hall, Dan Russell Arena, and the Folsom City Library, we know you and your family will enjoy your visit.
