Memphis Zoo canceling Zoo Rendezvous this year

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Zoo has decided to cancel Zoo Rendezvous 2020.

It is the largest single-night fundraiser and is a highly anticipated social event of the season.

Multiple factors played in canceling the event this year, which includes restaurants that have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

Rendezvous 2021 is set for September 11.

At that time, we will have one of the city’s most elaborate celebrations as Zoo Rendezvous will return in full swing with much fanfare and celebration, a release stated.
