The Zoo

The Lincoln Park Zoo was founded in 1868, making it one of the oldest zoos in America. It is also one of the only zoos in America that is free of admission, making the majority of its operating budget on attractions, food, retail stores, parking and fundraising. The zoo has a mission of connecting people with nature, and events like this one are a special way to do so in the community.

The tickets will cost $60 at the door if you plan on drinking, but designated driver tickets will only cost $20! Tickets can be purchased either at the door or at EventBrite.
