Grab your wine glasses and enjoy a night full of fun at Wild for Wine, the first ever wine tasting for the Akron Zoo. Tickets to event include a wine glass to use and take home, appetizers and  tastings from the wineries present.

A special addition to this event will be our paint section. At designated times, some of our animal ambassadors will come out for a visit and show off their Van Gogh skills. We will be selling and drawing raffle tickets for each time slot, so try your luck at winning the chance to choose the colors selected and take home that painting! Live music will be present to entertain, the entire zoo will be open with our animals out and our education team will have more animal art of different sizes and styles for purchase.
