Be part of the inaugural Growl Fest -- a Saturday, September 24 benefit beer festival sponsored by the Rotary Club of Norfolk, Norfolk Sunrise Rotary Club and the Virginia Zoo. The fun-filled evening at the Virginia Zoo will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will include:
  • Craft beer from seven area breweries, including Bold Mariner Brewing, Coelacanth Brewing, O'Connor Brewing, Rip Rap Brewing and Smartmouth Brewing. Stay tuned for other participating Hampton Roads breweries.
  • Exclusive after-hours admission to the Virginia Zoo (3500 Granby Street in Norfolk). Zoo animals will be on exhibit until 7:30 p.m., but the festival will continue until 9:30 p.m. (perfect timing for coming over after the afternoon ODU football game!).
  • A free 64-ounce commemorative glass growler for general admission ticket holders (given as you exit the festival).
  • Games, night-time Pokemon hunting and some of our region's finest food trucks.
  • Special-priced tickets for youth ages 2 through 20 and also designated drivers. Free admission for children under age 2.
