Night in the Tropics

The National Aviary's signature fundraiser, Night in the Tropics, returns in July with a vibrant new theme: African Safari! Adventure awaits at Pittsburgh’s liveliest party of the summer!

Don't miss any of the excitement; join us for:

  • Delicious light bites from more than 30 of Pittsburgh's favorite restaurants. Plus beer, wine, and specialty cocktails - all included with your ticket!
  • Electric, live music performances by Camara Drum and Dance.
  • Dancing under the stars as you enjoy live music by The Lava Game. 
  • Exclusive get-close experiences with beautiful birds while you explore the National Aviary's lush habitats after dark.

All proceeds from Night in the Tropics support the National Aviary's education, avian medicine, and conservation programs locally and internationally.  

New event set-up this year! Night in the Tropics will be taking place outside of the National Aviary's Main Entrance, allowing for even more room for activities. Due to this new event layout, we encourage you to wear footwear appropriate for walking in grass (i.e. flats and wedges).
