Oregon Zoo Summer Happy Hour Series

Credit: Oregon Zoo


Visitors who are 21+ can enjoy a zoo experience with dates, friends or family at an adults-only event.

Having cocktails at the zoo isn't just fun, it helps raise awareness and support for the zoo's mission of creating a better future for wildlife through its animal welfare, education, and conservation programs.

Tickets are $24.95 per person, $19.95 for Oregon Zoo members. Happy hour tickets will include zoo admission, one drink ticket, lawn games, photo ops, keeper talks and crafty activities.

There will be local food carts and breweries, along with beer, wine and signature snacks and cocktails for the event. Guests can ride the train and carousel for an additional charge.
