Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the Milwaukee County Zoo has cancelled its 2020 Zoo a la Carte food and music festival scheduled for August 20-23.

“Our community regards the Zoo as a loyal partner and environmental steward, and as such, we felt it was in the best interest of our visitors to cancel this year’s festival,” said Zoo Director, Chuck Wikenhauser. “In following the recommendations and best practices of our Milwaukee County leaders, the 2020 festival simply couldn’t occur in its traditional form, and with that in mind, we regretfully decided to cancel the event. Zoo a la CarteIt was a difficult decision to make, but our priority continues to be the health and safety of staff, visitors and the animals."

The staff now looks forward to planning for the 2021 “Feast with the Beasts.” For more information please contact the Zoo’s Marketing and Communications Department at 414.256.5411.
