Event Pocket Guide

Raise a toast to Franklin Park Zoo's annual wine and beer tasting event! Throughout the evening, guests have the opportunity to sample wines while strolling among the animals in the Zoo’s signature Tropical Forest Pavilion. Here, guests can see western lowland gorillas, pygmy hippo, ring-tailed-lemurs, a giant anteater and many other fascinating species.

This year only, venture through our Wicked BIG Bugs exhibit, where roles will be reversed as you find yourself looking up into the eyes of an 8-foot-tall tarantula, or at the tail of a mighty emperor scorpion looming 15 feet in the air! 

Thank you!
