Feast with the Beasts

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Tame your hunger on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 and come to the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park for our 28th 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, ambassador animal meet and greets, and our annual silent auction and basket raffle!

Bid early on silent auction items by visiting 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 21. 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 on the night of the event.

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

Feast with the Beasts is sponsored in part by Southern Tier Podiatry, Blaze Pizza, The Pour House, Magic 101.7, and 102.5 The Vault.
