Gone are the days of strolling the zoo and hearing your stomach roar. From Pancakes with Red Pandas to Beast of a Feast, the Elmwood Park Zoo is feeding avid animal-lovers with some of the best dishes (and drinks) in Montgomery County.
On Thursday, June 29, Crave Montco and Elmwood Park Zoo partner together to offer hundreds of sample-size dishes and drinks from dozens of local eateries. Whether you’re craving BBQ from The Lucky Well, a scoop of Petrucci’s Ice Cream, or a slice from MiDiCi Pizza Company, bites from the best in the area will be just steps from your favorite animals.
Plus, all the proceeds from Beast of a Feast benefit those awesome animals you (and your family) have the pleasure of meeting each time you visit. Beast of a Feast helps Elmwood Park Zoo continue to improve their facilities, aid worldwide conservation efforts, and grow the zoo’s educational programs for youth.

Not only do you get to taste your way through Montco, you’ll also be able to meet-and-greet zoo celebrities, like Stella the Great Horned Owl, check out animal encounters, listen to live music from local artists, and win wildlife favorites through the silent auction.
And if you’re looking for a perfect pairing with your bites, try your hand at some of the local (complementary) sips available on site this year. Teavana teas, brews from Taphouse 23, and vinos from Seasons 52 are just some of the beverages to add to your “must-try” list at this year’s event.
