Sponsorship Fast Facts

San Diego Zoo Food & Wine Celebration is proud to be San Diego's "wildest" food, wine and beer tasting event! Guests pay one price for admission and spend the evening sampling great food from San Diego's finest restaurants, tasting fine wines and beers, dancing to live music, encountering exotic animals, and discovering other entertainment as they party the night away. Started as Celebration For The Critters in 1980 by San Diego Chargers placekicker Rolf Benirshcke, Celebration is now celebrating 32 years and has raised more than $5 million for conservation!
