Join us for Oklahoma City's Wildest Night!

Friday, April 26, 2019

7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Come celebrate a night of raising funds for the Oklahoma City Zoo’s conservation mission and help us ensure a fierce future for wildlife and habitats at Safari Soirée.


The evening begins with cocktails, a stroll through the entire Zoo at night, and the opening of an incredible silent auction. It continues with some of Oklahoma City’s finest restaurants providing complimentary food stations throughout the entire zoo. It’s a true “star grazing” event. Live music, dancing, and other live entertainment creates a magical evening in Oklahoma City at the OKC Zoo. The event concludes with a late-night sea-lion show following up close exemplarily, behind the scenes experiences that spark a deeper sense of understanding of the Oklahoma City Zoo’s innovative field conservation programs both locally and worldwide to save species and their ecosystems.


General admission tickets include food, drinks and access to live entertainment. General admission tickets cost $75 per person (while supplies last at this price point) and $90 at the door (or when all tickets at the $75 level sell out).

$75: General Admission - Food, Drink, Live Music, Entertainment, & access to the entire Zoo at night.

$185: All Inclusive - Includes general admission access, 2 behind-the-scenes experiences, & exclusive access to the COOP Ale Works Party Deck at Sanctuary Asia.
