San Diego’s wildest tasting event returns on Saturday, September 24, with a few surprises to celebrate the zoo’s centennial year. The 36th annual San Diego Zoo Food, Wine & Brew Celebration takes over our famous zoo for an adults-only festival that allows guests to sample culinary delights and sip beverages from more than 150 San Diego area restaurants, wineries and breweries, as well as getting the chance to meet exotic animals like a cheetah, koala, and flamingo up close - all while supporting wildlife conservation around the world.
"Not only is this fundraising event a fun celebration for the people of San Diego, it’s to celebrate all of the animals that the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy saves each year, through their world wildlife conservation efforts," said Blake Miller, vice president of Corporate Marketing.
