This is a tradition like no other, and a fun one at that. The Atlanta Zoo is already a sight to see when visiting the big city, but when you add 70+ brews to the mix... it makes it just that much better.
Every Memorial Day weekend for the last several years, the zoo has held this massive event and each time it grows and grows! Thousands of people come out to enjoy this unique experience with their human friends, and animal friends.
Drinking alongside lions, tigers, elephants, and the other 1,000 species the zoo houses, is what you will experience at this event at the zoo on May 25, 2019.
The Atlanta Zoo is home to over 1,000 species that include giant pandas, and the zoo also has a large population on great apes, one of the largest in North America!
This event will make your inner party animal come out. Take your taste buds to the wild side when you sample the 70+ brews and specialty wines that will be featured at the event.
Tickets run at $55 for non-members of the zoo and $50 for members of the zoo. You can also purchase a VIP ticket for $125 to gain early access to the zoo, exclusive animal experiences, VIP special sections.
The money that is collected from the ticket sales goes towards support to protect the wildlife in the zoo, as well as their habitats. The money does not just stay within the Atlanta Zoo, it also goes to species and their habitats all around the world.
Even if you are not a beer or wine drinker and just coming to hang out with friends, you are helping save the animals and their homes and can see it in action when you walk around the zoo!
When you purchase a ticket you gain access to the 70+ beer and wine samples.
You also gain access to listen to zookeeper talks, a free carousel ride (if your stomach can handle it), and feeding selected animals.
The band line up includes Coast Guard, DJ Zano, Amelia, Sol Rizing, The DialUP, The Titos and the VIP preview party includes a performance by DJ Ree de la Vega. All of these bands will be playing throughout the zoo so you can sip, see animals, and listen to some great music all at the same time!
