Let us captivate your imagination at Lincoln Park Zoo’s Auxiliary Board signature fundraiser, Zoo-ologie. Inspired by the natural elegance of the zoo’s very own Nature Boardwalk, Zoo-ologie is sure to mingle fantasy with reality.

On Saturday, May 17th, leave reality behind, step through the gates of Lincoln Park Zoo and into a moonlit forest for a whimsical celebration. Dragonflies take wing overhead as you sip sweet cocktails. The aroma of flavorful bites from the city’s favorite restaurants wafts through the evening air. Our unique silent auction items are sure to tempt your curiosity. As dusk sets in, guests will notice soft lights twinkling from the trees. Mossy, green centerpieces will sit atop tables – a nod to the flourishing life of the zoo’s South Pond. A live band plays as you dance away the night under the glow of the moon. Expect the unexpected: a night of unimaginable fantasy is surely in store for all at Zoo-ologie.

Heading into its fourth year, Zoo-ologie continues to increase audience appeal by providing a top-rated and upscale experience in an unparalleled setting. In the coming year, Lincoln Park Zoo guests will witness several renovations, beginning with the construction of the new Regenstein Macaque Forest. Proceeds from this year's Zoo-ologie will go toward the Auxiliary Board's efforts to support these developments.
