Summer Safari

Summer Safari is the zoo’s largest fundraiser of the year, but is not your typical fundraiser. Guests are always in for a wild night which includes the entire zoo being open, games like the gift card pull, live entertainment, food from the area’s best restaurants, raffles & silent auction; Where else can you win a framed painting by a snow leopard?

Tickets on sale TBD


Friday, Sept. 18
7 - 10 p.m.

Join us for our largest fundraiser of the year. Enjoy live animal encounters, music, drinks and food from the area’s finest caterers and restaurants. Unique raffle and silent auction prizes include behind-the-scenes tours, art made by the animals and more! 

The event is not only fun, but a great way to come out and support your zoo and the over 700 animals in our care. We would love to see you at Summer Safari and be part of area’s wildest party!
