Finger-licking barbecue, beer and bluegrass music will all be part of the fun when Chattanooga Zoo hosts its annual Q 'n Brew on Saturday, July 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. The zoo is located at 301 N. Holtzclaw Ave.
One of the zoo's most-relaxing fundraisers, this event is open to parents and children of all ages. In addition to food and beverages, there will be animal encounters, live animal art, tortoise races, live art with Hollie Berry, games and music by Slim Pickins.
"Q 'n Brew is a favorite with zoo guests and staff," says Dardenelle Long, zoo chief executive officer and president. "With an array of such a summer food staple, great music and tasty drinks, it is a great, one-of-a-kind, fun family outing."
No live auctions or fancy attire, just good food, fun music and interesting animals.
Tickets for zoo members are $16 adults, $8 children. Tickets for nonmembers are $20 adults, $10 children in advance, $5 more on day of event. Tickets include zoo admission, two beverage tickets, signature cup and animal programs.
