The Mill Mountain Zoo is pleased to announce something entirely new, Acoustic Friday’s. Once a month we will be open late until 7:00 pm on a Friday. In addition, we will have live acoustic music from Joy Truskowski from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Joy Truskowski is a Roanoke-based singer-songwriter who performs heartfelt, uplifting, honest, and playful acoustic indie folk pop originals and an eclectic variety of covers. She uses a loop station live to weave together a sonic quilt of harmonies, flute, percussion, and guitar. Her voice carries the angelic soulfulness of Joan Baez and the exotic edginess of Grace Slick. Acoustic Friday’s are in response to the many patrons over the past few weeks who have expressed an interest in coming up to the Zoo a bit later in the day because of their schedules. So bring the family, see the animals, and catch some great music. This is all included in your regular ticket price, and don’t forget that zoo members get in free! Friday, 06/30/17; 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm Friday, 07/21/17; 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm Friday, Saturday, 07/29/17; 1:00-4:00 pm (rain date for last Friday’s performance) 08/25/17; 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm Zoo memberships will be on sale during Acoustic Friday’s for $65 in our gift shop and remember, we have ice cold soft drinks and snacks available for purchase too!
