Night Hikes


Join the Desert Museum for our second annual wine festival, WineDown with Wildlife, to help support the amazing wildlife in our care and celebrate World Wildlife Day. Sip on the best local and regional wines in the Southwest, sample sweet and savory snacks, enjoy local munchies, stargaze, jam to live music with Little Cloud, decorate your own coaster with the Art Institute, have fun in the Hello Gorgeous Photobooth, and visit with our engaging animals.

Food will be available for purchase from Ironwood Terraces and Phoebe’s Coffee Bar, as well as from local food trucks. While we do have water available for purchase, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle. We have water fountains all over grounds, and will have additional water stations.
