SZF - ZooGala - Bear Logo

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the green on the trees, and the flowers finally blooming. I just got some of my garden planted, and am ready for a break at the Forestry Farm. It’s the perfect time to get out and visit the zoo. It’s my favourite place to meet up with friends so we can wander around while our kids chase one another, play in the playground, and admire the animals.

It’s Erin again. Here to talk more about the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation’s Zoogala.

It’s such a unique and amazing event. The gala is drawing nearer and nearer. It’s next month! Tickets are still available for the fun on June 14th from 6:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. They are going fast though.

Zoogala – a Natural Place to Be. I love the theme. A Natural Place to Be. Nothing could be more true.  It’s your chance to explore the zoo at night (with a drink in hand, of course), meet the animals, mingle with the guests, Listen to music, and eat a delicious meal.

Live music by. Brad Johner and the Johner Brothers, Corey Morgan – Caribbean Steelpan, Wayne Bargen – guitar, and la Rosa y las Espinas – Jazz Trio. It will be a night filled with beautiful music as you discover what our zoo has to offer. Wander around the zoo while being serenaded.

Of course, there will be fabulous door prizes, raffle, and a silent auction as well.

As I said in my last post, this year is all about the bears. In fact, the 2019 Zoogala is for the bears. Make sure to learn more about the Master Plan which of course includes a huge new habitat for the bears Koda and Mistaya.

Make sure to get your tickets before they’re sold out.
