Dine Among the Great Apes

Join us for the Great Ape-ril by eating a special catered dinner at the ABQ BioPark Zoo.
March 14, 2019 - Don't miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine among the ABQ BioPark's chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans at one of two Great Ape-ril Destination Dinners next month.
 
The events will take place from 6-9 p.m. on April 19 and 20 at the Zoo. In addition to dinner, zookeepers will discuss great apes, toss treats to the BioPark's gorillas and show guests a behind-the-scenes training.

Dinner, which will be outside the chimpanzee habitat, will include strolling hors d'oeuvres, salad, soup, main course, dessert and a welcome drink. A cash bar will also be available. Full menu can be found online.
 
"This dinner is a fun and delicious way for great ape lovers to immerse themselves in all things gorilla, orangutan and chimpanzee," said Amy McGee, catering director for Taste ABQ BioPark Catering.
 
In addition, a silent auction will give attendees the opportunity to bid on ape art.
 
Tickets are $75 per person and can be bought online at Hold My Ticket: https://tickets.holdmyticket.com/tickets/335557?tc=hmt
 
This event is part of the Destination Dinner series, organized by the ABQ BioPark's catering partner, Taste ABQ BioPark Catering.
