One Night Only

Delectable bites and exciting animal encounters await at WildBites! Experience Woodland Park Zoo after-hours while enjoying delicious cuisine prepared by several of Seattle’s premier chefs while strolling through the zoo’s picturesque pathways and exhibits. 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.


Premium admission tickets are sold out!


Things to note that are new this year!

  • We have reduced the number of tickets available for this year’s event to accommodate a better guest experience.
  • Tickets will be sold by zone – one for the west entrance ticket and one for the south entrance. This will split the guest flow into the zoo and more evenly distribute guests to various chefs. Guests will be able to enjoy ALL the chefs at this event, but guest flow overall will be more evenly split throughout the zoo.
  • We are re-configuring the layout and spreading the chefs more evenly throughout the event space.
  • We are assigning line attendants at each chef area to assist in moving guests through the line and ensuring a quick and steady flow.
  • We have increased the number of full-pour bars throughout the zoo to decrease wait times in line.
  • We will increase the number of ticket booths where guests can purchase drink tickets.
