Zoo A La Carte at the Milwaukee County Zoo« Back to Events
“Feast with the Beasts” at the Milwaukee County Zoo! Milwaukee Journal Sentinel a la Carte, presented by Meijer, runs Thursday, August 15th through Sunday August 18th. Check out 27 area restaurants with palate-pleasing offers and national and local bands performing throughout Zoo grounds, including the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Steve Augeri (former lead vocalist for Journey), and Survivor!
Plenty of family-friendly activities are also available throughout the grounds, and of course the Milwaukee County Zoo’s remarkable collection of 2,100+ animals you can see and learn about. It’s one of the best family activities of the year.
Crafty kids can show their artistic side with Kohl’s Color Wheels, a mobile art experience. You can also enjoy a glass of wine, while listening to local bands at the Giraffe Village Wine Tent, sponsored by Champion Windows & Sunrooms. On top of that, you can visit the Brick Dinos exhibit, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets, which includes interactive LEGO® play-scapes and more. Admission is $3 per person.
Admission rates (includes all bands and activities):
Juniors (ages 3 to 12): $13.25
Children (ages 2 and under): FREE
Seniors (ages 60 and older): $15.25
