Delectable bites, tasty whiskey expressions and exciting animal encounters await at Whiskey & WildBites!

Experience Woodland Park Zoo after-hours while enjoying delicious cuisine prepared by some of Seattle’s premiere celebrity chefs paired with several of the finest whiskey tastings this area has to offer. This adults-only event is inspired by the zoo’s mission to save species—each ticket sold raises funds to help save wildlife in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.

Wander through the zoo and taste the fare of four different chefs and various different distilleries per night (a mix of global and local expressions). Come just one night or come to all four and experience the cuisine of 16 of Seattle’s finest chefs.
