Unforgettable Live Music

The natural beauty of the National Zoo makes it a perfect venue for memorable concerts - and while we can't tell you who is playing yet, we can honestly say this is going to be a performance you won't want to miss!

The Fine Print

Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-replaceable.

Please note that smoking is not permitted at the Zoo. Rock-N-Roar will be held rain or shine.

What to Bring

Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or low-seated lawn/beach chairs for seating. Food, non-alcoholic beverages, beer, and wine will be available for purchase at the Zoo. To be served alcohol, you must present a valid photo ID. Outside food and beverages will not be permitted.

Getting to Rock-N-Roar

FONZ encourages you to take public transportation and drink responsibly. Take the Red Line to the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan stop or the Cleveland Park stop. The Zoo entrance lies halfway between these stops, and both are a short walk from the Zoo.

Companies interested in sponsoring the event will receive valuable benefits ranging from logo ID on event and advertising materials to onsite signage, sampling opportunities, and complimentary tickets. For more information, email Jackie Vinick.
