Utica Zoo hosts annual brewfest


The Utica Zoo will be celebrating their Annual Utica Brewfest Saturday, Aug. 5 from 6-9 p.m. at 1 Utica Zoo Way. The Utica Zoo is a nostalgic staple in the community that so many residents remember fondly from childhood.  Being a grown up doesn’t mean you can’t still get your zoo on!  Always looking to keep things current, the zoo holds several annual events, of which the Brewfest is a stand out.  The Brewfest will feature over 100 different types of beer from all over along with wines, cider and wine slushies. With a selection that vast it’s sure to please everyone.  But it won’t stop with the libations.

Your ticket also entitles you to appetizers provided by Applebee’s, Domino’s, Celtic Harp, and UNO Pizzeria & Grill, and music by local super band, China Pig and Soup Bone Charlie.  A silent auction will also be held. And, the first 3,000 attendees will be walking away with a red panda inspired pint glass.

Certainly don’t forget the animals!  You and your neighbors can mix it up with all of the exhibits the zoo has to offer, reminding us all that our very own Utica Zoo is a treasure and an activity that the whole family can and should come back to enjoy.

Ticket prices are as follows:  Utica Zoo Members advanced sale, $30, or $35 at the door.  Non-member advance sale, $35 or $40 at the door.  Designated drivers can enjoy everything but the alcohol for $20. The event is rain or shine.
