The 2024 music lineup will bring tunes in a variety of sounds and styles, including 80s tribute band The Breakfast Club; acoustic soulful covers from Lilac Wine; and R&B, soul, and pop covers from Kenneth Kelly.  

poster for Panda ShandyMaking its exclusive debut at Brew at the Zoo this year is Panda Shandy. Created by partners at SweetWater Brewing Company in honor of the 25-year legacy of giant pandas at Zoo Atlanta, this limited-time brew is a refreshingly crisp lager with citrusy notes of pineapple, orange, and lemon. Panda Shandy will be available through the summer at Zoo Atlanta’s SweetWater Beer Garden and at the SweetWater Atlanta Taproom.

As part of an ongoing commitment to sustainability, Zoo Atlanta has partnered with r.World to offer reusable r.Cups to reduce single-use waste. Guests are encouraged to return these sampling cups to designated bins before leaving Brew at the Zoo; once collected and sanitized by r.World, r.Cups can be reused hundreds of times.

VIP tickets are now sold out. General admission tickets are available at $60 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $70 for non-Members. 

Advance ticket purchases are strongly encouraged. Get tickets at
