Fur Ball 2017: “Rock and Roar: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love”

When: Friday, September 15, 2017

Where: San Francisco Zoo; Sloat Boulevard at the Great Highway, San Francisco, CA 94132

“If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair...”

2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, a defining moment of the 1960s when as many as 100,000 young people from around the world descended on the Bay Area, creating a phenomenon of cultural, political and social change that helped shape San Francisco into the city it is today. Join us to celebrate this landmark occasion at Zoo II’s signature event at the Zoo on Friday, September 15. This wild night features groovy cocktails, delicious food, and live music by Notorious. There will be dancing, a silent auction, carousel rides and exotic animals like you’ve never seen them before. All proceeds to benefit the Zoo. If you’re up for a little adventure, please purchase your tickets today!

Proceeds from Fur Ball will support the Zoological Society’s mission to connect people with wildlife, inspire caring for nature, and advance conservation action. With more than 2,000 animals in its collection, the Zoo fosters curiosity, appreciation, and respect for nature.
