Saturday, April 27 "Mane" Event

Two amazing nights - and both will be at the Zoo!

(Event takes place rain or shine)

At Wild Wines, guests enjoy food from the area's best restaurants paired with hand-selected wines from O'Looneys Wine and Liquor. Special appearances by some of the Zoo's Animal Ambassadors will make this experience truly unforgettable! It's why AY Magazine readers voted Wild Wines the best fundraising event in the state!

The Friday night VIP experience happens in and around Cafe Africa and the Civitan Pavilion and features higher-end wine and food from the best area restaurants along with live music from The Rodney Block Collective. A specialty souvenir wine glass is included with your lanyard for Friday night and lanyards for Friday night include admission to the Saturday night "Mane" event. 

The Saturday night "Mane" event is the Wild Wines party the public has grown to love at the Little Rock Zoo with more than 200 wines to sample and food from more than 40 area restaurants and catering establishments. Animal ambassadors greet guests and live music can be found at five locations throughout the zoo! This year's lineup includes:  D Harp Steel Drums, SynRG, Billstown, Dizzy 7 and more! Not a wine drinker? Wild Wines even features beer and other beverages for non-wine drinkers. The Saturday night event includes a souvenir glass. It's a party like no other and it all benefits the Arkansas Zoological Foundation for the Little Rock Zoo.

Wild Wines has something for everyone and is unmatched in variety and selection. As one of the largest food and wine events in the state, Wild Wines won't disappoint!
