AutumnFest at Como Park is officially 3 weeks away! EVOLVE Adoption & Family Services invites you to grab your friends and enjoy a night of fundraising, food, and fun on Thursday, October 22, from 6 – 9 pm!
The event will be held at the beautiful Bullard Rainforest Auditorium in the Como Zoo Visitor Center’s second floor, with spectacular views of the Bird Exhibit and surrounding zoo. Throughout the night, some of the finest craft beer, wine, and hard cider vendors will be present to offer samples from their best selections.


What better pairing with your samples than a food truck-inspired meal!
Enjoy fundraising games? We will have a silent and live auction, along with a cash raffle. Don’t miss our “Border Battle”, where we’ll be auctioning off a 2014 Green Bay Packer’s Football signed by the team alongside a signed Teddy Bridgewater Viking’s Jersey. Which team item will go for more? Find out that night!

Additional auction items include:
  • A Hot Air Balloon Ride for 2 from Stillwater Balloons
  • A Trip to Mexico
  • A Taste of Lanesboro – Including 2 nights at the Scanlon House Bed & Breakfast, 18 holes of golf, and $50 towards the Cracked Egg restaurant.
  • A Wine Wall
  • And more!
Want to secure one of these items? Take part in our Golden Ticket Raffle! Purchase one of the limited number of Golden Tickets and you could have a shot at grabbing a live auction item of your choice before the rest go up for auction!
Looking for more fun? Everyone will enjoy the “animal ambassador”, a local zoo inhabitants that will be stopping by during the night. Who will it be? You’ll have to be there to find out! Participants can also take a few pictures at our photo booth!
Nationally known folk musician, Peter Mayer will be performing a few of his hits throughout the night. “Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of ‘folk’, and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.”
We hope to see you at AutumnFest this year and help support our mission of finding permanent, loving families for every child!
