Zootastic Zoo Journey

Every animal at the Milwaukee County Zoo has its own journey to share. Some were born here. Some were transferred here. Some will get transferred to a different zoo. You can learn how your favorite animal came to the Zoo at Zootastic, a Zoological Society of Milwaukee fundraiser that features animals, food and music. The Zoo will stay open after hours from 5 to 9 p.m. for this April 26 event. You can visit the Animal Health Center, the Aquatic & Reptile Center, the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country, the Primates of the World and Stearns Apes of Africa buildings. Zookeepers will answer your questions and give you insider information about animals. After you’ve filled your brain with animal information, you can fill your tummy with macaroni & cheese from Noodles & Company, pizza donated by Palermo’s® Pizza and popcorn donated by Tri City National Bank. There will also be an ice-cream sundae bar donated by Cedar Crest Ice Cream and the Masterson Company. Then, twist and shout at a child-friendly dance party with music by Source1 DJ Services. For fun, family-themed prizes, there are both an auction and a raffle. All guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
