brew at the zoo: postponed until spring

In light of the City of Springfield’s new mask mandate that went into effect today - and the rise in COVID cases in the city - our Board of Directors has opted to postpone Brew at the Zoo until spring. Given the setup and nature of Brew at the Zoo (focused on eating and drinking), it would be very difficult to hold this event and remain in compliance with the mandate, which requires masks for all people, regardless of vaccination status, both indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. And, of course, we want to ensure the health and safety of all vendors, guests and Zoo animals.

If you already purchased tickets, they will be honored for the new date. If you would prefer a refund, please email with your first and last name.

We want to thank our sponsors, vendors and ticket buyers for their support and we look forward to welcoming you to Brew at The Zoo this spring.
