Sunset at the Zoo, a seasonal adults-only event at the Central Florida Zoo is back this fall on select dates from September 7 – October 19, 2017. This 21+ event invites you to step into the zoo after hours for adult beverages, food, live music, and animal sightings.

Live music provided by Joshwayy Productions will create perfect sunset ambiance.
