San Diego, California - Enjoy a globally inspired, all-inclusive food, wine and beer tasting event with more than160 of Southern California's best vendors—along with animal encounters, live entertainment and dancing—inside the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

San Diego has earned its stripes as the craft brew capital of America—and Southern California’s wine regions have thrived for decades. At the Food, Wine & Brew Celebration, attendees can enjoy some of the best beer and wine Southern California has to offer, along with a big selection of small bites from local restaurants, giving guests a chance to try something new and enjoy some longtime favorites.

Guests will meander through designated party zones while they dance, sip, savor, sample, soar and roar (like a lion). Whatever they’re up for, this event will have something for everyone.

Proceeds benefit the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy, which is committed to saving species worldwide and leading the fight against extinction. Currently, San Diego Zoo Global is involved in saving more than 130 species in 45 countries.
