Summer Safari

Summer Safari supports animal care, wildlife conservation projects and education at the Akron Zoo. With your continued support, we can make even bigger strides towards saving endangered animals. 

Friday, Aug. 5

Join us for the Akron Zoo's 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 1,000 animals in our care. We would love to see you at Summer Safari and be part of area’s wildest party!
