On Saturday, August 5, Chicago’s beloved Lincoln Park Zoo will launch its special after-hours event offering guests the chance to stroll the zoo with no kids and no crowds just their chosen beverage in hand, and plenty of space to sit and sip with friends and family!
Taking place throughout Lincoln Park Zoo’s buildings and grounds, the adults-only event welcomes guests aged 21 and over to enjoy unique animal chats, a live DJ, and multiple bars throughout the zoo all evening.
DJ Marcus Carter will be performing live on the zoo’s Main Mall while Maddy Griseto & Gerry D’ Antonio will be providing live music on The South Lawn so guests can sit back and bask in the merrymaking or throw some shapes at the exclusive adults-only night at Lincoln Park Zoo.
There will also be karaoke with Sound Sonic Entertainment at Foreman Pavilion for those feeling inspired by the night’s entertainment to give it a go themselves.
For any guests feeling competitive lawn games like foosball, Cornhole, giant Jenga, and giant Connect Four will be available for late-night adventurers to enjoy.
Please bear in mind that Lincoln Park Zoo has a zoo policy that promotes positive animal welfare and so the animals will have a choice whether they are indoors or out. The chances of seeing them at night will vary from animal to animal.
“We hope many animals will choose to be outside, but they may choose to spend their evening indoors.” reads the Lincoln Park Zoo website.
Saturday Night at the Zoo will take place from 6:30 pm until 10 pm. Early Bird Tickets can be purchased for $25.00 + $6.26 up until 11 pm tonight before they go up to $35.00 +$7.32 Fee for General Admission Tickets.
Tickets can be purchased at the door but as it is a limited-capacity event there will be a limited number of tickets for sale at the door at a higher price.
All proceeds benefit Lincoln Park Zoo and help the zoo stay free and open for all.
