SAN ANTONIO – This fall, the San Antonio Zoo invites country, rock, and Latin music fans to its first-ever Zoo Fest.

The Zoo Fest will be held at the Sunken Garden Theater on Saturday, Oct. 22. Guests can expect a wild-and-woolly day with music, dancing, food, drinks, VIP experiences, and admission to the San Antonio Zoo.

Each ticket purchased helps secure a future for wildlife and wild places, according to a news release.

The festival will include performances by the Josh Abbott Band, AB Quintanilla & Kumbia All Starz, and Finding Friday. More acts are expected to be announced soon.

“Country, rock, and Latin music have been mainstays of San Antonio’s music scene for decades, and we want to provide all in a single event,” said President & CEO of San Antonio Zoo Tim Morrow. “For over 100 years, San Antonians have been visiting San Antonio Zoo, and since 1926 they’ve been attending shows at Sunken Garden Theater, and now they can do both for a great cause!”
