Zoolala is the Indy Zoo Council’s annual fundraising event, attended by emerging and aspiring leaders from across Central Indiana. This unforgettable event includes music, dancing, fabulous food, fun and philanthropy, all held​​ on the Indianapolis Zoo grounds inside the White River Gardens Hulman Riverhouse. ​​

During the evening there is live entertainment, an open bar with beer provided by Sun King Brewing Co. and a popular craft cocktail competition presented by Southern Wine & Spirits, with special drink inventions by some of Indy’s favorite mixologists. And to satisfy those culinary cravings, guests also enjoy samplings of delicious foods by Chef Joe Hsu from the Zoo and other area restaurants.  

Continue the festivities at Severin Bar, the official Zoolala After Party sponsor, inside the Omni Severin Hotel. After a full night of fun, there's no need to travel far to wind down. Rest up at the Omni, Zoolala's official hotel sponsor. You can even snag a discounted room for the evening if you book now!
