Music City’s wildest party returns to the Nashville Zoo on Friday, April 26. During the second annual Sips for Species fundraising event, you can mingle with fellow animal enthusiasts — and the animals.

Here’s what to expect:

🦩 Animal encounters

All evening, guests will meet unique and interesting animals up-close. Think: flamingos, aardvarks, and more. Meanwhile, keepers will share fascinating insights and stories about the species.

You’ll also learn about the Zoo’s many local and global conservation efforts, including its partnership with the Alliance for Tompotika Conservation (ALTO). This organization works to protect and restore ecosystems in Sulawesi, Indonesia — and $10 from your ticket supports this cause.

🍻 Local food, drinks, and tunes

While you mix and mingle, sip samples of handcrafted cocktails and craft brews from 40+ beverage purveyors + grab a delicious dish from the food trucks and vendors.

Additionally, enjoy live music from featured musicians Cay Aliese, Colby Deitz, and Bella Raye.
