The “wildest” party of the year, Zoofari, returns to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium! Zoofari will be held at the Columbus Zoo on Saturday, June 15, 2019. Party like an animal at this annual adult-only festival with nearly 100 of Central Ohio’s best restaurants and bars serving their signature dishes, as well as live music on several stages throughout the zoo from 7 pm – 12 am. Your evening will be spent walking through the Zoo tasting food from fantastic restaurants, sipping drinks, and listening to live music from great bands.
Tickets are on sale now at the lowest price for this annual summer blast! The earlier you buy your tickets, the more you’ll save – a limited number of discounted tickets are available. This event is definitely a splurge, but it’s a lot of fun with tons of high quality food, so we think you get your money’s worth. Tickets make a great gift or special occasion celebration – just be sure to get them early for the lowest price.
- $89 per person (less than 96 still available on 3/2)
- $99 per person (500 available)
- $125 per person (700 available)

Tickets often sell out, so get them early! Tickets include food samplings, three drink tickets, complimentary water, and live entertainment. VIP and group tickets are also available. Additional drink tickets may be purchased at the event, or discounted presale. Pre-purchase drink tickets at 5 for $16, or buy for $4 each at the event. Plan for a designated driver or a car service – cars can be left at the Zoo to pick up the next day!
Many of the animals go in for the night and won’t be on view, but select regions will be open until 9 pm.
If you want to help out and save money on your admission, you can volunteer for a 3 hour shift and enjoy the rest of the event outside of your shift. Check out the volunteer opportunities here (not updated for 2019).
Proceeds benefit conservation and education programs at the Zoo. A portion of the ticket purchase is tax deductible too. Event is 21+ only.
