Wisconsin and outdoor festivals go together like peas in a pod. Of course, it’s not a proper festival without live entertainment and food. If you love going to festivals, you’ll definitely want to check out the Milwaukee County Zoo’s food and music festival featuring a huge collection of animals to admire as you graze from more than 23 Milwaukee-area restaurant booths.

Enjoy a glass of fine wine at the Wine Tent, sponsored by Guardian Home Improvements. Watch Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles, perform on Saturday, Aug. 22, at 8 p.m. at the Caribou Stage. You can enjoy other musical acts at the Lakeview Stage, sponsored by Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® The entire park and all animal buildings will be open at night (the Mahler Family Aviary closes one hour before dusk, approximately 7:30 p.m.). Remember to check out the special summer exhibit, Expedition Dinosaur, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets. Exhibit admission is $2.50 per person.
