2. Brew at the Zoo | 21+

The Zoo is back! We all went a little thirsty in 2020, but thankfully, Brew at the Atlanta Zoo is back! (And they’re pretty happy to be there for you.)

The brews are back on draft with the all the brews Atlanta has come to love for over 12 years. This year has a few changes on tap, but it’s still going to be a fantastic time. You’ll taste beer from some of Atlanta’s best breweries, while getting a chance to ride the free carousel and the other great Zoo train rides.

Experience some amazing wild life while you’re at it: witness more than 1,000 animals from around the world, including giant pandas and one of the largest populations of great apes in North America. You’ll also catch the new African Savanna, featuring elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, warthogs, meerkats, and southern white rhino! 

There will also be live music, with a more “intimate groove.”

You’ll have four chances to attend this summer open-air affair. Check the schedule below.

Capacity is limited, so get your tickets today.
