Event description

Description

On October 18, 2019 dress up in your best Halloween attire and come out for an evening of fun, great sips, and bites. The second annual Zoo BOOze & Bites will tantalize your taste buds with signature bites from local restaurants and sip on of an array of wine, whiskey and brews. There will be music, animal appearances, a chance to participate in games, a silent auction and more! This year, the event will take place in the plaza, carousel, grassy knoll, Red Wolf Picnic Shelter, and the Pacific Seas Aquarium. Venture to the Zoo this autumn evening for a spooktacularly spirited evening! This event is for 21+ ages only.

TIcket proceeds from this event will support animal care and the education and conservation programs at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. This event also falls on Wolf Awareness Weekend so Silent Auction proceeds will go directly to supporting needs for the red wolves here at PDZA!

What’s included in each ticket price:

-General Admission ($75 or $60 early bird) - 10* sips from an array of wine, beer and whiskey partners as well as unlimited signature bites. *Additional drink tokens will be available for purchase the night of the event.

-In addition, included in each ticket are animal appearances, carousel rides, entrance to the Pacific Seas Aquarium, and an exclusive 2019 Zoo BOOze & Bites tasting glass.
