Calgary's Wildest Party with a Purpose!

Posted on August 31

Calgary, AB – On September 11, 2021, the Calgary Zoo will be hosting its first ever ZooLaLa event - a luxurious adult only night out to celebrate and support the critical conservation work the Calgary Zoo does both locally and globally.

“We’re excited to bring a special, one-of-a-kind conservation celebration to our community,” said Alison Archambault, Director of Brand & Engagement at the Calgary Zoo. “ZooLaLa is truly a ‘party with a purpose’. Guests will enjoy food, live music and unique animal experiences they wouldn’t be able to see during a daytime visit, all while supporting the Calgary Zoo’s critical wildlife conservation work locally and globally!”

Every guest is a VIP at ZooLaLa, which offers ticket holders a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes workings of the zoo, as well as live entertainment, food samplings, and libations!

Entries will be staggered in 30-minute intervals to ensure a safe, fun experience for all!

The Experience:

The event will host a Zoonique online auction and raffle beginning on September 1, 2021 and closing during ZooLaLa on September 11, 2021. The online auction and raffle are open to all ZooLaLa ticket holders as well as the general public.
