Get Ready for the 8th Annual Brew at Zoo in Palm Desert Locale Magazine Editors March 24, 2017 Spread the loveThe Living Desert Zoo and Gardens Plan to Bring Craft Beer, Tasty Bites, and Wine April 1 Written By: Mimi Dang Brew at the Zoo On Saturday, April 1, The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens presents their 8th Annual Brew at the Zoo—a fundraising event where you can save “wildlife one beer at a time!” Being one of Palm Desert’s best events, don’t wait to get your tickets! With more than 50 breweries and restaurants participating, there will be unlimited samples of premium craft beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages and food, provided by Coachella Valley’s top restaurants and caterers. The evening also includes entertainment with several live music stages throughout the beautiful backdrop of the botanical gardens and wildlife. The Annual Brew at the Zoo is one of The Living Desert’s major fundraisers, which directly supports their mission of desert conservation, through preservation, rehabilitation and appreciation. The funds raised will help support local and global conservation projects, as well as education programming from guests of all ages. For almost five decades The Living Desert has been engaged in the important work of preserving and researching the desert and the variety of plant and animal life, in order for us and generations after us to experience. New this year is the African section of the park, which will be open for guests to explore and see some of your favorite animals such as zebras, cheetahs, warthogs and oryx. So amidst the sounds of leopards chuffing, howling of the wolves and coyotes, and hooting of owls, enjoy a night at the zoo with live bands such as Bleeding Harp, Andy Cahan, The Walking Phoenixes, Giselle Woo, and Zulluu; local vendors, like The Fox & Fiddle, Tommy Bahama, Fresh Agave, La Quinta Brewing Co and Hanger 24 plan to strut their stuff; and, of course, close encounters with the exotic animals!
