Go behind-the-scenes and venture into Zoo habitats to participate in one of four different food spreads: Elephant All-You-Can-Eat, Baboon Breakfast, Sun Bear Buffet, or Grizzly Grub, and, Giraffe Meet-n-Munch!

This event, formerly known as Feast for the Beasts, allows you the rare opportunity to place food around habitats before the animals go out for the day. Spread produce for the elephants, hide seeds for the baboons, spread snacks for the sun bears, or toss treats around the grizzly yard. Do you love giraffe and want to help support them in the wild? We are also offering the opportunity to feed a giraffe!

Tickets to participate in the animal spreads are $15 per experience with proceeds going to support Oakland Zoo’s outstanding Animal Care work. Giraffe feedings are $20 with all proceeds going to our conservation partner the Reticulated Giraffe Project in Kenya.

Please Note: Regular Zoo admission is not included with this event ticket. Buy your Zoo admission ticket at the door - you do not need an advanced Zoo reservation if you purchase a ticket for this special experience. Present proof of membership & photo ID or pay for Zoo admission and parking at the Zoo’s Main Entrance when you arrive on the day of the event. Quantities limited; 660 total tickets will be available for purchase.
