According to uticazoo.org:

"On Saturday, August 2nd from 6 to 9PM the Utica Zoo will host its 16th Annual Brewfest event. The event takes place on the beautiful grounds of the Utica Zoo under tents and large pavilion, rain or shine. This event has become the Utica Zoo’s largest adult fundraiser.

Fundraisers like this one have made it possible for us to expand and improve our grounds and animal exhibits including this year’s additions.

Attendees of this event are able to sample over 70 microbrews from across the country as well as a sampling of local foods and entertainment all while enjoying a summer night of sounds and sights at the Utica Zoo!
