Sunset Affair: Discover Como
Como Friends’ annual summer benefit for Como Park Zoo and Conservatory
Thursday, July 21, 2022
A Minnesota tradition for more than a century and a meeting place for generations of families, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is so much more than a zoo and botanical garden. A cultural treasure and a true community resource, Como welcomes everyone and belongs to us all.
Join us as we “Discover Como” all over again at Como Friends’ Sunset Affair, a summer gala to celebrate the extraordinary animals and plants, exciting education programs, and exceptional keepers and horticulturists who connect our community to the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
Whether you join us in person, or log in for a virtual experience, every guest at Sunset Affair will have the chance to bid on the amazing, only-at-Como Silent Auction items that have made our summer gala a can’t-miss moment for so many.
Gather your friends, reserve your preferred ticket option, and get ready to “Discover Como” anew on July 21!
to Como Friends’ summer gala, and “Discover Como” all over again.
