Bite Night: ZooFari

A benefit for wildlife sponsored by GEICO
Mark your calendars for Bite Night: ZooFari on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Tickets go on sale to Friends of the National Zoo members at a steep discount beginning Thursday, March 5, and to the general public on Thursday, March 26. Take a look at last year's highlights below, and check back soon for more information.

On May 16, 2019, more than 50 of D.C.'s best restaurants lined the Zoo's main walk, offering samples of their finest fare during ZooFari: Bite Night, a benefit for wildlife sponsored by GEICO.

Guests ate, drank and danced the night away, all while learning about vital wildlife conservation work.

At five “watering holes” throughout the event, guests chatted with Smithsonian scientists about their work on cutting-edge conservation science projects supported by Conservation Nation, a FONZ initiative that directly funds conservation efforts in the wild.

They also met and mingled with a trio of D.C.-area celebrity chefs, checked out the Zoo’s animal houses after hours and bid on wild items at the silent auction tent.
