Zoo BOOze & Bites is less than a month away! On October 25, 2018 guests will dress up in their best Halloween attire and come out for an evening of fun, great sips, and bites. Zoo BOOze & Bites, a tasting event, will tantalize guests' senses with signature bites from local restaurants while they sip on of an array of wine, whiskey and brews. There will be live music, a chance to participate in games, raffles and more! This event is for 21+ ages only.


Proceeds from this event will support animal care and the education and conservation programs at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.


We need your help! We’re looking to quickly fill volunteer roles, as this event is just around the corner!

We’re looking for 70 volunteers to help with:

Set up/take down, greeters, admissions, loading/cart drivers, game volunteers, cleaner/waste disposal, gate access control, and floaters.

Please note that we are also looking for a few volunteer leads that are flexible and have leadership experience.

We're hoping to conduct short phone interviews to match you with the position best suited for your needs/skill set.


Note: Volunteers must be at least 18 years old to help with set up/take down. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old to help out during the event due to proximity of alcohol.
