WHAT GOES ON AT THE ZOO AFTER THE GATES CLOSE?
Join us for ZooFest on Saturday, June 17th, and get a chance to find out! During ZooFest you can interact close up with roving zoo staff holding animals, pose for photos, create enrichments 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!
Come join us for an evening of fun, adventure, and surprise!
