LAST CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE FIRST OF THE ALL-NEW SAVANNA NIGHTS!

LAST CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE FIRST OF THE ALL-NEW SAVANNA NIGHTS!

Summer craft cocktail series takes flight this Friday, June 24

WHAT: Don’t let the sun set on the Savanna without you! Time is running out for tickets to the first of three installments of Savanna Nights, the all-new, 21-and-up summer craft cocktail series at Zoo Atlanta, coming up on Friday, June 24, 2022.

The casual, inspirational evening will feature tastings of imaginative, wildlife-inspired craft cocktails against the unforgettable backdrop of Zoo Atlanta’s African Savanna, home to African elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, warthogs, meerkats, and southern white rhinos.

Guests will also enjoy live music from The Ben Wade Band; special Keeper Talks; and wildlife viewing until dusk on the African Savanna. Bites from food truck favorite Gaston Eats Co. will be available for purchase.

Tickets include six complimentary cocktail flight tasting tickets redeemable for one four-ounce tasting of each available cocktail. Beer, wine, and mixed drinks will be available for purchase.

Live music, featured cocktails, and featured food trucks will change monthly. Future event dates are Friday, July 12, and Friday, August 8. Learn more about featured cocktails, music, and food here.

While in the wild, this legendary landscape is no stranger to warm temperatures, Savanna Nights explorers need not be deterred by Atlanta’s recent heat wave. A portion of the June 24 event will take place in Savanna Hall’s climate-controlled Michael & Thalia Carlos Ballroom, overlooking the African Savanna.

Tickets are $35 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $40 for non-Members. Get tickets and info at zooatlanta.org. Savanna Nights is open to ages 21 and up only; guests under 21 will not be admitted.

WHEN: Friday, June 24, 2022, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

WHERE:
Zoo Atlanta
800 Cherokee Avenue S.E.
