Join The Zoo in Forest Park for its fourth annual Wine Safari.

Date and time: T.B.D.

The concept of Wine Safari is unique to our area. Eight wine tasting stations will be set up throughout the first floor of the Valley Venture Mentors space at 276 Bridge St., Springfield, where guests can sample wines from different parts of the world, such as South Africa, the United States, Italy, Germany and Argentina.

Each station – and each geographic region represented – will feature animals from The Zoo in Forest Park that are indigenous to that particular area. Guests will be able to sample wine, interact with the animals, and learn about the animals’ natural habitats. Zookeepers will be on hand to provide information about the animals and lead any interaction activities.

Admission is $40, which includes the wine tasting, animal interactions and a variety of hors d’oeuvres. A cash bar will be available.

Our previous Wine Safaris were sell-outs, so buy your tickets now before it's too late!

This event is 21+, and IDs will be checked at the door.
