King of Feasts at the Sacramento Zoo, June 25th, 6-9pm ENTER TO WIN TICKETS!
One of my favorite summer events is the Sacramento Zoo’s King of Feasts. Now that summer has finally showed its face, come out and celebrate at this one-of-a-kind outdoor event.
Break out your luau attire and prepare for a unique evening of international aloha-flavor for adults. Relax with entertainment and food. The evening will include Ukulele players, Polynesian dancers, a hula-hoop contest and three silent auctions featuring one-of-a-kind items.
The party takes place on Saturday, June 25th, from 6 pm to 9 pm and will feature a wide selection of local beers, wines, premium spirits and mouth-watering specialties offered by the Sacramento region’s finest restaurants.
Some of the restaurants providing delicious samples include: 4th Street Grille, Chops, Cupcake Craving, Giovanni's Pizza, Grateful Bread, Just 4 U Catering, Kru Restaurant, L and L Hawaiian BBQ, The Melting Pot, Mochii Yogurt, Mulvaney's B&L / Culinary Specialists, Piatti, Pyramid Alehouse, Red Lotus Kitchen and Bar, Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill, Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, Taste of the Wild Catering, Taylor’s Kitchen and Vic’s Ice Cream. New this year, Food Trucks - Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen is confirmed with possibly more trucks on their way.
Breweries, wineries and beverages include: Amador Cellars, Boeger Winery, Bacardi, Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Bogle Winery, Heringer Estates Winery, Hoppy Brewing Company, James David Cellars, Lost Coast Brewery, Michael-David Winery, Oakstone Winery, Renwood Winery, River City Brewing Company, Rominger West Winery, Scribner Bend Vineyards, Sudwerk, Terra d'Oro Winery and Twisted Rivers Wines.
This is the tenth consecutive year for the event, which draws hundreds of participants annually. Because of this fundraiser, the Zoo will close early at 1:30 p.m. that day to prepare for the Luau. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $45 for Zoo members, $50 for non-members or $60 at the door. Adults only, please.
