Looking for a Wild Time? The Animals Will Be Taking Over Our Craft & ‘Que Event!
That’s right! On Thursday, October 6, rain or shine, wild animals from the Elmwood Park Zoo will be swarming the Normandy Farm grounds for a beastly good time at our fourth and final Craft & ‘Que event of the year. You don’t want to miss it.
Craft & ‘Que with the Zoo promises to make you squeal with excitement as you devour our all-you-can-eat Southern-themed fall barbeque featuring a Cajun spiced whole hog station loaded with slaws, salads and sides. Chomp on cheddar grits, fried chicken, collard greens and a seafood boil at the Southern Delicacy Bar. Then slither to our award-winning executive pastry chef Sam Nahhas’ decadent dessert table.
Wolf down endless Zoo-exclusive brews like Tall Blonde and Bison Brown from Prism Brewing in nearby North Wales. This year we will also be joined by local award-winning distillers Manatawny Still Works from Pottstown. Pair your feast with our premier house wines including chardonnay, merlot and sauvignon blanc.
Enjoy the sounds of uniquely energizing funk, blues, rap, scat and whatever else the Whiskeyhickon Boys feel when they hit the stage.
This wildly anticipated event will sell out quickly, so snap up general admission tickets now, or take advantage of our exclusive VIP package (early entrance, cocktail servers and reserved seating on our Grand Terrace) for the ultimate BBQ experience.
