ZooBrew May 2023 – Cinco de Rhino!

May 5 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

** ZooBrew is BACK for the full season – check back for ticket availability!**

Spend an evening outdoors at the Zoo with a drink in hand at ZooBrew! Enjoy great live music, delicious food and drink, and animal experiences at this after-hours event exclusively for adults 21+.

ZooBrew typically supports elephant conservation with a portion of each ticket sold. However, this year we are making this first kick-off event a special version to support rhino conservation in honor of ‘Cinco de Rhino!’ ZooBrews have raised nearly $60,000 for elephant conservation and we want to share a little of that support with rhinos this year. Help us reach our goal!

Join us at the only event in town where you can help save elephants rhinos from extinction just by attending!

**Limited number of tickets will be made available when they go on sale (check back). Advance ticket sales end at 2 p.m. the day of ZooBrew or when sold out. Tickets are date specific and non-refundable. All sales are final. Should a ticket holder be unable to attend the event, the purchase will be considered a donation.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door (if available), and include event admission, live music, and animal experiences. Beer, wine, and food will be available for purchase. Beer and wine tents accept CASH ONLY. This event is held rain or shine.
