This just popped up in our email and thought it was worth sharing! Special advisory from The Maryland Zoo:

[SPECIAL ADVISORY]: This a special advisory for any Zoo guest planning to visit on this Saturday, April 26th. Druid Hill Park is hosting several MAJOR events this Saturday. These events are not run by or related to the Zoo, but we anticipate a significant impact to traffic and parking for Zoo guests on this day. Traffic will be detoured to the Greenspring Avenue Zoo entrance and visitors should expect extra delays getting into the Zoo. Please allow additional time to account for congestion.

The Druid Hill Park events will also be charging for parking. In order to ensure the Zoo’s parking lot has spaces available for Zoo guests, on this Saturday only, Zoo visitors will be asked to pay $10 for parking (cash preferred) in the Zoo’s parking lot, then guests will receive a $10 Zoo voucher toward admission costs at the front gate. Zoo members and pre-purchase ticket holders can simply show their membership card (or tickets) to gain access to the parking lot without paying.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as the Zoo does not control events that happen within Druid Hill Park. We hope that this information allows you to plan accordingly and to ensure your visit goes smoothly. Please click here for complete information and suggested traffic routes.
