Milwaukee County Zoo a la Carte food and music festival canceled over COVID-19

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee County Zoo announced they've canceled its 2020 Zoo a la Carte food and music festival set for August 20-23. 

“Our community regards the Zoo as a loyal partner and environmental steward, and as such, we felt it was in the best interest of our visitors to cancel this year’s festival,” said Zoo Director, Chuck Wikenhauser.  “In following the recommendations and best practices of our county leaders, the 2020 festival simply couldn’t occur in its traditional form, and with that in mind, we regretfully decided to cancel the event. It was a difficult decision to make, but our priority continues to be the health and safety of staff, visitors and the animals.

According to a news release, Zoo staff now looks forward to planning for the 2021 “Feast with the Beasts.”
