What Happens At the Zoo After the Gates Close?
DATE: Join Us Again June 2018!
Each June, the Valley Zoo Development Society is proud to sponsor a night to find out! During ZooFest you can interact close up with roving zoo staff holding animals, pose for photos, create enrichment’s for our residents, watch painting demonstrations by Lucy the Asian elephant and partake in raffles and bid on unique live and silent auction items. There will be restaurant and wine sampling for adults, a live and silent auction, and a Kids Zone that will have crafts, games and unique opportunities for kids to get up close and personal with our fuzzy, feathered, and scaly friends! There are few opportunities in Edmonton where adults can have a first class evening and share that with their children, and this is one of the best!
Not only is it fun for the whole family but the entire event is in support of two great non-profits – the Valley Zoo Development Society and Zebra Child Protection Centre!
Join us again June 2018 for an evening of fun, adventure, and surprise!
HERE ARE SOME OF THE GREAT THINGS THAT HAPPEN AT ZOOFEST:
- An exciting Live Auction and over 100 Silent Auction items to bid on

We invite you to join us again in 2018 and become a sponsor of ZooFest, which takes place after hours on the zoo grounds. As previous years, there will be restaurant and wine sampling for adults, a live and silent auction, and a Kids Zone that will have crafts, games and unique opportunities for kids to get up close and personal. There are few opportunities in Edmonton where adults can have a first class evening and share that with their children.
Our ZooFest Sponsorship opportunities are usually listed early spring, in the meantime we invite you to look over our great sponsorship packages for the 2017 Zoominescence: A Festival of Light celebration!
HELP BUILD OUR ZOO!
It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children's future and the planet!
