Racine & Me: Racine Zoo’s Call Me Old Fashioned 2024 and more!

RACINE, WI (CBS 58) -- The Racine Zoo is getting ready for another round of events with something for all ages!

Executive Director Beth Heidorn joined us in studio to give us all the details and brought a surprise animal! 

Call Me Old Fashioned 

Wednesday, March 20

6PM – 8PM

Call us old fashioned, but we can't help but love Wisconsin's classic cocktail! Step in from the cold and warm up by sampling old-fashioned drinks, enjoy hors d'oeuvres by Red Onion Cafe, meet an ambassador animal, and more! Bring your friends or your date for this fun night at the Zoo.  Must be 21 or older to attend. Proceeds benefit the animals and programs of the Racine Zoo.


  • Saturday, March 30, 2024
  • 10AM – 4PM
  • Gather the little ones and enjoy an Easter-themed day to put a little "spring" in your step! Bring your own basket for a hunt for Cluck-Cluck doors throughout the Zoo to collect candy. Stop by the Trunk Hunt with local businesses handing out goodies. Feeling creative? Check out the cookie decorating, egg decorating, and egg-cellent crafts. Don’t forget a photo with the Easter Bunny (for $5). Activities are included with regular Zoo admission and free for Zoo members.
