Are you ready for one Wild Night?

Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo invites you to the party of the year! Gather at the Zoo on Saturday, June 1st, and sample tastings from dozens of our favorite restaurants, caterers, and wine & beer vendors. Listen to live music, taste a Malbec with our monkeys, or sip a pilsner with our prairie dogs.

The Wild Wine, Beer, and Food Safari is one of the Zoo's largest fundraiser. All proceeds will support Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo's mission of conservation, education, recreation, and research. We thank you for your support! 

This is a 21+ event. IDs will be checked at the entrance.
