The Ark Project is proud to present the 5th annual Zoobrew, an exclusive 18+ affair at the Edmonton Valley Zoo!

Join us on Friday, August 19th and wander the Zoo with a drink in hand at this twilight event. The Valley Zoo transforms into a peaceful escape on a summer night, perfect for photographers, a night out with friends, or a fun date night with your significant otter!

Attendees will experience a one-of-a-kind evening at the Edmonton Valley Zoo, filled with live music performed by local artists, sample a wide variety of craft beers, wines, and spirits from breweries across the province, and of course, visit the Zoo's famous furry residents.

This wild night of fun will help raise funds for your local Valley Zoo and allow you to experience a unique evening free of kids at the Zoo. Enjoy a walk around the Zoo and learn about the animals while sipping on craft beer, spirits or wine. Sit in the grass and bask in the talent of numerous Edmonton performers.

Cheers to conservation!
