Save the Date for Lincoln Park Zoo’s Summer Wine Fest

The Lincoln Park Zoo is always a popular place to spend some time during the summer months, but you’ll have an extra reason to visit on July 26th: the Summer Wine Fest Presented by JPMorgan Chase. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., the zoo will host a special wine tasting with after-hours admission to the zoo.

Snag a ticket ($20+) and you can enjoy up to 20 tastings throughout the evening, with more than 35 types of vino to choose from. As you do, drink in live music, courtesy of local bands and solo performers, and meander the beautifully maintained gardens. You can also buy food to soak up the booze. If you opt for a VIP ticket, arrive at the event early (6 p.m.) and soak up some rooftop views from the deck above the gift shop.
