This is a fundraising benefit unlike any other. A secret back entrance to Happy Hollow through Danny's cave, 3 signature cocktails, private access to the park playgrounds after hours, 7 foodie stations by PSRT, up close animal encounters with David Jackson, complimentary photo booth by SJ Photobomb, dancing to DJ John Beaver, featuring Justin Imamura, bathtub racers, King Neptune's Lounge, and a sake bar from Yuki Sushi at the top of the Redwood Lookout.

The Pacific Fruit Express rollercoaster will be open. All your favorites from last year, plus some new surprises! Tivo’s VIP Tiki Lounge, featuring an 18 foot tall Tiki Bar and presentations of The Secret Show with Illusionist Jay Alexander. Leave the kids at home, and party with the animals after dark.

Attending this event supports all areas of the Park & Zoo growth, including exhibit renovation, the Puppet Castle Theater, Attractions and species protection. Proceeds from the Hoot & Howl benefit many program areas of the Park & Zoo. Donations above the ticket price are highly encouraged and make this a “friendraiser” and a fundraiser for San Jose's vintage park and accredited zoo.

Get your party posse into gear and be a Safari Captain!
