Wild Wines 2018

Friday, April 27 VIP Night
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Saturday, April 28 "Mane" Event
7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Still two amazing nights, and both will be at the Zoo!

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!

The Friday night VIP experience happens in and around Cafe Africa and the Civitan Pavilion and features higher-end wine by O'Looney's and food from the best area restaurants along with live music in two locations. A specialty souvenir wine glass and plate are included with your pass 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 250 wines from O'Looney's 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! Not a wine drinker? Wild Wines even features beer and other beverages for non-wine drinkers. The Saturday night event includes a souvenir glass and plate. It's a party like no other and it all benefits the Arkansas Zoological Foundation for the Little Rock Zoo. There's a reason AY Magazine calls Wild Wines Arkansas's Best Charity Event!

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!
