Brew at the Zoo

Friday, June 17, 2022
6pm — 11pm

Kick off the summer at the Bronx Zoo! Brew at the Zoo, your favorite after-hours party for adults ages 21+, is back on Friday, June 17.

You’ll get up-close with 52 life-sized dinosaurs and pterosaurs on our Bronx Zoo Dinosaur Safari walking trail! Get “lit” in our new Illuminated Playground, with lighted swings, seesaws, and more. Play new games including 60 second challenges at the Tournament Zone, expanded Trivia, and Name That Tune, and take photos with illuminated characters!

Plus, enjoy more VIP Exclusives than ever before, including exclusive beer and wine sampling areas, new locations and photo ops throughout the park, and exclusive VIP swag.

And of course, your favorite Brew at the Zoo classics return, with sample bites from food trucks and zoo cafes, and tastings of more than 100 varieties of beer, wine and cider. Full details >>

Round up the troops and join us for the wildest party in New York City.

It was a great night. I saw some animals, I played some games, I had some drinks, and I saw my friends. I’m so happy we came.”
