Brew at the Zoo Tickets

  • Brew at the Zoo guests

Join Friends of the National Zoo from 6 to 9 p.m. on July 20 for the return of D.C.’s biggest and best beer festival, Brew at the Zoo! Enjoy great times and great brews with unlimited beer tastings from more than 70 breweries, animal encounters, live music, and fare from popular food trucks—plus lawn games like Brew Corn Hole, if you want to show your competitive side.

Proceeds benefit the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's mission to save species, so you can show your support while tasting craft brews from around the country!

Discounted tickets will go on sale for FONZ members at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 8, and non-member tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 15. These tickets move quickly—join today if you’d like to get your tickets early (and at a $15 discount).
