Zoo plans Halloween fun for adults

Party with the animals! The Indianapolis Zoo's press release for

Brewfari 2021:

Craft brews, Halloween activities and amazing animals — it all adds up to a fun evening for adults only at Brewfari 2021 presented by Scarlet Lane Brewing Company.

The Halloween party will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Indianapolis Zoo, 1200 W. Washington St. in Indianapolis.

With exclusive after-hours access to the Zoo’s grounds, attendees can stroll down the main pathway to sample offerings from 20 top breweries and cideries from Central Indiana and beyond. The Zoo’s eateries will also be open late, serving a variety of sandwiches, snacks and other fall favorites for purchase. Throughout the night, guests can visit Pumpkin Town to meet spooky creatures, like rats, snakes and black cats. Partygoers can also get up close and interact with the species they’re supporting during special animal chats. Additionally, partygoers can receive free psychic readings in the Ascension St. Vincent Dolphin Gallery and find thrills hiding in the Pumpkin Town mirror maze.

Costumes are encouraged, and the best-dressed guests can compete in a costume contest before dancing under the Bicentennial Pavilion, with music by DJ Lockstar.

Tickets for Brewfari are $60 per person and are available through the Zoo’s website, indianapoliszoo.com. All guests must be 21 or older.

This evening of fun and philanthropy, hosted by the Indy Zoo Council, also helps to fund the care of the Zoo’s nearly 1,400 animals and 47,000 plants as well as its global animal conservation initiatives. Founded in 2011, the Council is comprised of emerging community leaders who are dedicated to supporting the Zoo and its mission of protecting nature and inspiring people to care about our world. Since 2013, the Council’s signature fundraising events have raised more than $540,000 for the Zoo.
