Will I see any animals?
Yes! Animals will have access to their outdoor habitats. Keep in mind, though, the animals will want to get to bed at a reasonable time! Be sure you make it to the event before 7:30 p.m., when animals will head indoors.

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 food samples have been donated and will be served only while supplies last.

I’d like to eat something more substantial than the bites restaurants provide. What are my options?
Select Zoo Atlanta restaurants will be open for the event. Please be advised that food from Zoo Atlanta restaurants is not included with your event ticket and is available only for purchase.

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!

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?
Parking is very limited in the Grant Park area. The parking lot on Cherokee Ave will fill quickly. Most guests prefer to carpool, take MARTA, or use a rideshare option like Lyft. Remember, you should never drink and drive.
