Safety Precautions

In order to host a fun and safe event for our guests, we have made a few changes to Wild for Wine this year:

  • For the safety of your peers and other guests, masks are required and social distancing is encouraged.
  • Sanitizing stations and 6ft queue lines will be throughout the zoo.
  • Compostable tasting cups will be at each station to avoid touch points and cross contamination.
  • Staff and volunteers will be wearing face masks and gloves for your safety.
  • We have limited the event capacity to 350 guests to ensure ample space for social distancing.
  • Indoor buildings and play areas will remain closed.
