Brew at the Zoo is back! Kick off the spooky season at the Bronx Zoo. Grizzly bears, lemurs, sea lions and more will be on exhibit from 6-7:30pm. Throughout the night we'll have a retro arcade, live band, DJ, animal trivia and bingo, and more.

VIP guests will enjoy fast-pass entrance, exclusive VIP areas and activities, and cool commemorative swag -- see the full list below. Beer, wine, and cider start flowing at 7pm. Whether you sample from numerous food trucks or enjoy classic bites at one of our zoo cafes, there will be a wide array of treats available for purchase.

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