Welcome to the Jungle

Need to warm up this winter? A tropical jungle is closer than you think!

Sip beer, wine or a signature tropical cocktail, mingle with colorful birds, and even hang with our resident sloth and armadillo all while supporting the National Aviary’s important work in conservation, education and veterinary medicine.

o DJ Scottro is back as he turns up the heat on the dance floor
o Sip wine, signature tropical cocktails, and tasty brews from our neighbors at Penn Brewery (available for purchase)
o Enjoy tasty, tropical food from Atria’s (light bites included with ticket, heavy hors d’oeuvres and meal items available for purchase)
o Meet one of our adorable sloths and learn more about this amazing species and the importance of preserving its habitat
