zoofestEver wonder what happens at the Edmonton Valley Zoo after the gates close? Zoofest is your chance to find out! On Saturday, June 15, 2019, you can visit the Zoo after the gates usually close for some amazing animal encounters! Interact with roving zoo staff holding animals, pose for photos, watch painting demonstrations by Lucy the Asian elephant and bid on unique items in live and silent auctions. There will be restaurant and wine sampling for adults, and a Kids’ Zone that will have crafts, games and unique opportunities for kids to get up close and personal with fuzzy, feathered, and scaly friends! Zoofest is a fundraiser for the Valley Zoo Development society, which is supporting the remarkable transformation underway at the zoo, including the Carousel Project.
