More about Zoofari:

Zoofari is East Tennessee's best party and Knoxville Zoo's most important fundraiser wrapped into one. 

This year, Zoofari guests will be transported to ancient Egypt in honor of the new North African-themed lion and baboon exhibits opening in 2011. The zoo's grounds will be transformed into an enchanting venue setting the stage for an event like no other. In true zoo style, animal ambassadors will be greeting guests to make sure we put the "safari" in "Zoofari"! Additional highlights include the exciting live auction with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, elegant dinner and signature cocktail. To top off this most festive affair, Dueling Piano - a Zoofari first - will keep you on your feet.

Attendance is limited so don't let the party go on without you.

Knoxville Zoo is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Zoofari raises over $200,000 for vital animal care, education and research. This year's proceeds will specifically support conservation of the majestic African lion with a new breeding program that will bring lion cubs back to Knoxville Zoo for the first time in over five years!

Check back often for online payment options, new links, auction items and up-to-date Zoofari information.
