Magical things happen at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden! From the birth of the famous 6 week-premature baby hippo, Fiona, to the first ever Zoo Access for All Day welcoming the Developmental Disabilities Community, people of all ages and interests can find something special at the Cincinnati Zoo!
Here at Mikesell’s, we love getting out and meeting the communities we serve. We have been a partner of the zoo for several years and have loved every moment of it! Having a fun day at the zoo is a way for us to meet fans face-to-face, support local organizations, and share some delicious snacks.
We especially love going to the Cincinnati Zoo in the summer for the “A Toast to the Wild” event series. You may have seen us stationed near the Wings of Wonder Amphitheater or maybe the Insect House during these events. Wherever we might be during these Thursday summer nights, you can always find us with your favorite chips, puffcorn, and sometimes even pretzels!
Beyond sampling our newest chip flavors, Spicy Dill Pickle and Old Fashioned Himalayan Sea Salt and Vinegar, guests can enjoy featured adult beverage sampling, light fare donated by several local restaurants and eateries, live music, and special animal encounters! Something you might not have known about these special, adult-only events is that $35 of each ticket sold goes directly to CREW (Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife)!
If you missed seeing us at these great events this summer, don’t worry! A fourth event, “Zoo Brew” will be held this October as part of the series. So, come on out to the Cincinnati Zoo, see some animals, enjoy some Mikesell’s snacks, and help a great cause!
