Zoobilee! Party with a Purpose

Party with a purpose at the Zoo’s 32nd annual Zoobilee presented by BankRI. Join us on Saturday, June 29th for a night of roaring fun, all for a great cause! Indulge in delicious bites from dozens of the area’s top restaurants and sip on refreshing cocktails. Dance the night away under the stars to the electrifying sounds of Mystique. Get to know some of your favorite furry (and feathery) friends with special encounters.

Plus, your ticket helps save wildlife and wild places! Every dollar raised at Zoobilee supports the Zoo’s mission of conservation and education.

All food samples are included, and cash bars are available. This is an adults-only evening event (21+). 

Current Zoo members receive a $25 discount off each general admission ticket (limit 2 at the member rate). Discount will automatically apply at checkout.


  • Animal Encounters: Get up close with your favorite furry (or feathery) friends!
  • Music to Move Your Soul: Dance the night away to the live sounds of Mystique, New England’s Premiere Wedding & Party Band.
  • Pop a Bottle: It’s Wine & Beer Bottle Bazaar time! Score delicious wines and craft beers (think bubbly pinots and juicy IPAs) for just $35. But here’s the twist: every bottle and 6-pack hides a SURPRISE gift certificate! You could win vouchers for fancy dinners, thrilling adventures, relaxing spa days, and more! Most certificates are worth $25 or WAY more!
