On May 21, from 5-8 pm, the Potawatomi Zoo is hosting the annual food and beverage sampling event, Eat and Drink at the Zoo. Vendors from around the local region will be at the Zoo to share samples of their products.

This event is for adults 21 and over. The Zoo will close to the public at 1 pm for this event.

“We believe the Zoo is for everyone, and events like this give our adult visitors a chance to try something new at the Zoo,” says Josh Sisk, executive director of the Potawatomi Zoo. “We love inviting the community to different kinds of experiences at the Zoo, and there are plenty of cool new things to see and do at this year’s Eat and Drink.”

Tickets are $85 per person and includes all food and drink samples, plus unlimited rides on the Potawatomi Zoo Express and Endangered Species Carousel.

There are a limited number of VIP tickets available for $125. VIP tickets include early entry, an exclusive animal encounter, and a specialty cocktail, as well as exclusive food samples.
