The Chattanooga Zoo will once again host its annual Spirits in the Wild event on Saturday. Event guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the Zoo underneath the stars, participate in behind the scenes tours, and enjoy music provided by the Peter Moon Band.
The evening will include tastings of a variety of liquors, craft beers, and wines, along with sampling of different cuisines from some of Chattanooga’s restaurants and eateries, all while raising funds for the Zoo.
“Spirits in the Wild is one of our favorite events we host here at the Zoo,” says Darde Long, Chattanooga Zoo CEO and president. “It is a great fundraiser for our animals, and it really gives us a chance to showcase and share our Zoo with the community.”

Food sponsors include Dipped Fresh, Golden Corral, Sugary Creations, Kelly’s Kreations, Noodles & Company, Riverstreet Deli, Eleven, EarthFare, Taco Mamacita, Urban Stack, Community Pie, Milk & Honey, 212 Market, The Acropolis Grill, 1885 Grill, and Hennen’s Restaurant.
