     Brookfield, Ill. – Do you think you are the wisest owl? You have the chance to prove it at Brookfield Zoo’s inaugural Trivia Night on Saturday, August 25, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The fun-filled evening will include music, food and drinks, and of course, plenty of triva questions. Winners from each round will receive prizes courtesy of Miller Lite. Also, several animals from the zoo’s ambassador program will make an appearance during the evening.

Tickets cost $35 for an individual or $210 for a table of six. (If tickets are purchased individually, seats must be found on a first-come, first-served basis.) The price includes parking, admission to the zoo during regular hours of 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and three drink tickets for beer, wine, or soft drinks. In addition, select food items will be available for purchase.

There are sure to be some animal questions during the event, so participants can come early and brush up on their critter facts before heading over to the zoo’s Pavilions.

All ticket holders for trivia night must be 21 years of age or older. A photo ID is required for entrance. Space is limited. To make reservations or for further information, visit
