6:00 p.m. Reserve Wine Room experience  SOLD OUT! (description below)

Please note:  Wild Wines has been moved to War Memorial Stadium because of a strong chance for inclement weather on Saturday, April 30. The general event will take place in and around the main concourse and the Reserve Wine Room will happen from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the 2nd floor suites. Animal guests from the Zoo's Education Outreach program will make special appearances and the Zoo's penguins will drop-in on the Reserve Room.

More food! More wine! More beer! More entertainment! More animals! More FUN!

It's the Zoo's 90th birthday and we want you to help us celebrate our "90th at Night!" Wild Wines is one of the state's largest food and wine events with food from 50 restaurants and more than 200 high-quality wines to sample donated by O'Looney's Wine & Liquor. The attention to detail in the selection of wine for this event sets it apart from others and makes it a unique experience well worth the price of admission! Live music areas keep you moving all night long and you'll also get the chance to meet some animal friends along the way. It's a culinary experience like no other at the best venue in town - the Little Rock Zoo!
