Will I see any animals?
Yes! Keep in mind, though, that the animals aren’t party animals, and will head to bed at a reasonable time! Be sure you make it to the event before 8 p.m., when animals will head indoors for bed.

Are all the food and beverage tastings included in the ticket price?
Yes! Guests pay one price for admission and enjoy free samples from restaurants, wineries and breweries. All samples will be served while supplies last.

Will there be anything offered besides wine? 
Of course! There will be a limited supply of beer available during the event. Please be aware that bars in the upper Zoo will close at 8 p.m. Bars in Flamingo Plaza, the Main Spine and underneath the Ford Pavilion Tent will be open the entire night!

Are the rides or attractions open? 
Our Endangered Species Carousel will be open until 8 p.m. The Zoo train, Rock Wall, Canopy Climber, and Treetop Trail will not be open during Sippin’ Safari.

Will tickets sell out? 
Sippin’ Safari has sold out in the past.

Will there be a designated driver ticket?
Sippin’ Safari will not offer a designated driver ticket, but we appreciate designated drivers for being responsible and remind everyone never to drink and drive.

Can I bring my baby/child?
Sippin’ Safari may only be attended by ticketholders 21 or older. Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputies will be checking IDs at the gate. Visit our event webpages to see our full calendar of events appropriate for the entire family!

What should I wear?
Comfortable festival attire and walking shoes are encouraged to enjoy the entire event footprint.

Where should I park?
Paid parking is available in the Cherokee Avenue parking lot and Grant Park Gateway parking facility on Boulevard. These lots are owned by the City of Atlanta and are managed by AAA Parking. Most guests prefer to carpool, take MARTA, or use a rideshare option like Lyft. Remember, you should never drink and drive.
