FONZ Member Event: Giant Panda Birthday

  • Giant panda Bao Bao climbing her birthday ice cake

FONZ members, get an early start on the celebration!

Join us at 9:00 a.m. as members wish Bei Bei, Bao Bao, and Tian Tian a very happy birthday with exciting activities, special performances, tasty food treats, and panda souvenirs at Asia Trail. We encourage everyone to wear their favorite FONZ gear—a lanyard, button, t-shirt or anything that shows you're a member of FONZ or have attended a FONZ event or program. You're more than welcome to wear a panda costume, if it's not too hot and you're feeling extra festive. Fun prizes will be in store for those proudly sporting FONZ wear!

Members are asked to arrive at the top entrance of Asia Trail nearest to the Connecticut Avenue entrance at 9 a.m. for a welcome from our Executive Director, Lynn Mento. No RSVP required, but please present proof of active FONZ membership with photo ID. Stay and enjoy the public event commencing at 11 a.m.

Not a FONZ Member, but interested in attending this exclusive event? Join today!
