Free Fridays 2021

Every Friday in January and February for Residents of Richland and Lexington Counties

In appreciation of the continued support of residents of Richland and Lexington Counties, Riverbanks Zoo and Garden will once again offer complimentary admission to Richland and Lexington County residents every Friday during January and February. The offer is extended to residents of the two counties because Riverbanks is a special purpose district that supplements its operating budget with property taxes collected in both counties.

Timed Reservations Required.

Due to COVID-19 Riverbanks is operating under restricted capacity, and all guests are required to reserve timed tickets online. Residents of Richland and Lexington County must present their reservation confirmation and proof of residency for each member in the party over age 18 at any Riverbanks ticket booth to obtain free tickets for entry.

Face masks are required in accordance with ordinances set by the City of Columbia and the City of West Columbia. Learn more.
