2017 Feast with the Beasts

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Tame your hunger on Wednesday, August 23rd and come to the Binghamton Zoo for its 26th annual Feast with the Beasts! This event will showcase more than 25 New York and Pennsylvania restaurants and wineries.

A wide variety of specialty cuisines, desserts, and wines will be available for the evening. In addition to the many food and drink samplings, there will also be a number of other activities such as live music, animal spotlights, and our annual silent auction and basket raffle!

Bid early on silent auction items by visiting www.rossparkzoo.com in the month of August. Items include signed memorabilia from national touring musical acts, comedians, sports teams, and many local businesses. Online bidding will be available one month prior and will continue at Feast with the Beasts on August 23rd. The auction will conclude at the end of the event.

Feast with the Beasts kicks off at 5:30 pm and will end at 8:00 pm (last ticket sold at 7:30). Tickets are available online, at the zoo’s ticket booth, and at the night of the event. Member tickets are $20.00 and non-member tickets are $25.00.

All proceeds from Feast with the Beasts go directly towards supporting the Binghamton Zoo. For more event information, please visit www.rossparkzoo.com or call (607) 724-5461.
