Taste of the Browns 2021


Taste of the Browns: At the Zoo!

Taste of the Browns, normally scheduled in September each year, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, like many other events, we are thinking creatively about how to still make it happen! We’re taking Taste of the Browns to the Zoo for a family-friendly event!

The event is rescheduled for November 14, 2021 from noon – 4 p.m. in the Zoo’s amphitheater and Australian Adventure.

This reimagined annual event will include all of the things we love about the traditional event including fabulous food from local restaurants, Browns alumni mixing and mingling with guests, silent auction featuring Browns memorabilia and restaurant gift cards as the Browns vs. Patriots game kicks off.

Additionally, guests will experience small animal encounters and admission to the Zoo is included in the ticket price. Join us to celebrate our restaurant community who has supported the Food Bank over the years and in turn, show our support to them during these challenging times. In addition to the online silent auction, there will be a 50/50 raffle and live & pre-recorded remarks from the Taste co-chairs and the Food Bank’s CEO.

Ticket cost is $75 each and includes entrance to the Taste of the Browns event including food and beverage as well as admission to the Zoo. Children age 3 - 17 are $25 and children 2 and under are free.
