Love Gone Wild features strolling hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Detroit Zoo’s culinary team, two drinks and a commemorative gift.

Love Gone Wild demonstrates our commitment to sustainability as a waste-free event. Join us on our Green Journey as Love Gone Wild focuses on locally grown and sustainable menu options and incorporates environmentally friendly practices throughout the evening.
