Deacs’ Day at the Zoo


Bring your kids, grandkids, or that special someone and join us for our 2nd Deacs’ Day at the NC Zoo!

On Saturday, November 4, Wake Forest alumni, parents, and friends from across the state will gather at the NC Zoo in Asheboro.  Tour the Zoo at your leisure and drop by our private, covered picnic area between 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. to join us for a Wake Forest cookout. The menu includes: BBQ pulled chicken, burgers, hot dogs, and sides. There will be games, activities, a live animal encounter, and a special visit by the Deacon! You’ll need to purchase Zoo tickets and cookout tickets separately (see below).

To Register for the Wake Forest Cookout:

We will be in the “Solar Point” covered picnic area (located by the North America Parking Lot). Register for the catered cookout here. Tickets are $16 per adult and $10 per child (12 and under). Children 3 and under are free. The Deacs’ Day at the Zoo Cookout Event is from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.

To Purchase Zoo Tickets: 

Purchase and print your Zoo ticket (group discounted price) directly from the NC Zoo here. Bring your tickets with you to the Zoo and use at either entrance.

See the pictures from last year. We’ll be there with our black and gold – will you?
