MOONLIGHT ON THE MOUNTAIN IS SOLD OUT, BUT TICKETS REMAIN FOR OTHER SUMMER ADULTS-ONLY FUNDRAISERS

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s tasting events will be the WILDEST events in town


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 28, 2019) – Moonlight on the Mountain, one of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s most popular adult-only events, is Thursday, June 27, from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets to this 21 and over event are officially sold out, but Tails, Tunes & Tastes tickets are still available.

Moonlight on the Mountain attendees will enjoy samples of beer, wine, spirits and coffee, as well as delicious tastings from area restaurants. Plus, local musicians will set the mood throughout the Zoo and have guests dancing the night away until 10 p.m.

Animal exhibits will be open until 8 p.m., so guests (minus kids, of course), can get hands-on with animals from The Loft, feed giraffe and watch special keeper talks and animal demonstrations through 7:30 p.m.

Two additional adults-only events are scheduled for later this summer, and tickets are available now. Tails, Tunes & Tastes offers a similar experience to Moonlight on the Mountain. It happens twice, on Thursday, July 25, 2019, and Thursday, August 29, 2019, (tickets sold separately) from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Tails, Tunes & Tastes will feature the full Zoo experience, live music, and all-inclusive food and drink from Taste, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s catering partner. More information and tickets are available at cmzoo.org/tails.

Moonlight on the Mountain and Tails, Tunes & Tastes are excellent ways to see the Zoo after hours, support local musicians, enjoy delicious food and help the Zoo care for its animals, make improvements and continue its worldwide conservation efforts.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s Moonlight on the Mountain is sponsored by Cordera, Green for Life and Your Colorado Springs Toyota Dealers. Tails, Tunes & Tastes is sponsored by Colorado Springs Independent and Navy Federal Credit Union.
