Zoofari 2014, presented by Nationwide Insurance, is the Zoo's annual, adults-only fundraiser featuring more than 100 central Ohio restaurants and bars serving appetizer portions of their signature dishes and specialty drinks. Guests “graze” their way through the Zoo enjoying live entertainment on multiple stages scattered throughout Zoo grounds. Come with friends, wine and dine your business associates, entertain your out-of-town guests, or reward hard-working employees—don’t miss Columbus’ best summer party! It is bound to be one wild night as the Zoo's adult only premier fundraising event takes place. It's a whole new park after dark!
