Guests will enjoy dishes from more than 65 Kansas City area restaurants, 10 full and specialty bars providing limitless alcoholic and non-alcoholic libations, and entertainment throughout the night on four different stages.

Tickets are $175 per person, and you are asked to show your most animal-inspired creative black-tie attire (no jeans, please.) For tickets, email For more information, visit or
