Utica Zoo Opens Sponsorship Opportunities for Annual Events

Utica, NY – The Utica Zoo is known for annual signature events for adults and families alike such as  Wine in the Wilderness each June, Brewfest each August, and the Fall season’s two-day Spooktacular/Harvestfest.  Newly added over the past few years is Sunset Sips running each Friday night in July through the end of August where the entire zoo’s habitats and children’s play area is open until 8 pm with live music and adult beverages on the terrace along with the new family tradition of Bright Nights in which the zoo is transformed with large animated holiday light scenes, traditional seasonal festivities and the jolly man himself.

The Utica Zoo is a not for profit and corporate sponsorships allow these robust events to continue while keeping the ticket price in an affordable range.  The corporate partnerships begin at $500 through $10,000 and offer a variety of deliverables that can be customized to best suit the sponsor.  The opportunities are outlined in an annual document named Let’s Partner Up and can be obtained by contacting Andria Heath at a.heath@uticazoo.org or 315-738-0472 Ext 41.  Inquire now to optimize all promotional opportunities.  All funds raised remain locally to care for the animals and progress the programs and mission of the zoo.

The Utica Zoo creates unique experiences and promotes public appreciation of wildlife through education, conservation, and recreation and is home to over 200 exotic and domestic animals, welcoming over 100,000 visitors annually. The Utica Zoo is open to the public 363 days a year.
