2019 Calendar of Events
Our Botanics Department has been busy growing and preparing unique items that will be available for purchase during the festival. Among the offerings are tropical bedding plants, unusual perennials (including butterfly attracting plants), trees, shrubs, orchids, and ornamental grasses. We’ll post a full list of available plants as we get closer to the event. Our members get early access to the sale on Friday, May 3 from 5-7:30pm.
This adults only night is sure to be wild! Enjoy beer, wine, and food samplings from local breweries and restaurants in a unique after-hours Zoo experience.
Vintage Vines: Pairings for Penguins is for the benefit of Mesker Park Zoo’s much-anticipated Penguins of Patagonia exhibit. The evening will include a gourmet dinner with wine pairing, as well as silent and live auction lots featuring wine experiences and more.
