Still not convinced? Here are five more reasons why Adult Night at the Calgary Zoo is the place to be:

1. Try Something New With Your Date

Ever wondered what it would be like to explore the Calgary Zoo after the gates close? This is your chance. Switch up the traditional dinner and drinks date and come get immersive at the zoo.

2. There’s Food and a Bar

If you’re anything like us, your first thought at any event is whether or not there will be food and drinks available. Rest assured, the Calgary Zoo has got you covered with German-inspired cuisine and a cash bar on site so you can sip on some tasty libations all night long. Yukon Beer is sponsoring Adult Night: Oktoberfest and will be offering a free sample to each guest.

3. Get Educated  

The Calgary Zoo has really thought about it all. To add to your experience at Adult Night, there will be two sessions of tiger training taking place during the night. If you’re curious. tiger training is a way for the Zoo’s Amur tigers to practice natural behaviors that exercise their minds and bodies. Talk about a roaring good time.

4. It’s Guaranteed To Be A Unique Party

Prepare to get your dance on with a Silent Disco in the Safari Lodge. All attendees will be given wireless headphones to wear for the evening. Watch as a seemingly silent room transforms into a high energy musical performance for a party you’ll definitely remember.

5. Support Conservation

Do some good in your ‘hood. Adult’s Night is the perfect opportunity for you to help the Calgary Zoo out since a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales go to conservation efforts. Trust us, your furry friends will thank you. You’ll even get an ecofriendly beer stein to use all night and take home to commemorate Oktoberfest at the zoo.
