Zoobilation 2021: Bayou Bash presented by AES Indiana.

This summer, take a trip down the bayou for a Southern-style celebration you’ll never forget! The theme for Zoobilation 2021 is Bayou Bash in recognition of the Zoo’s new exhibit, Alligators & Crocodiles: The Fight to Survive, opening Memorial Day weekend.

Indianapolis’ most anticipated event of the year will take place on Friday, June 11, beginning at 5:30 pm with the Premium Experience presented by Ice Miller LLP and followed by general admission from 7 pm to midnight.

For this single luxurious night, the Zoo’s familiar landscape of incredible animals and exhibits will be transformed with the rhythms of live music as well as the alluring scents of premium foods and beverages — providing the perfect party atmosphere.

The Midwest’s largest black-tie fundraising event, Zoobilation is also a party with a purpose, supporting the Zoo’s animal conservation mission. The Zoo’s largest single-day fundraiser, the 2019 event raised $2.5 million to help fund the care of the Zoo’s nearly 1,300 animals and 47,000 plants as well as its global conservation initiatives.
