Fire Fest

Dartmoor Zoo are thrilled to present Fire Fest ’24!

Fire Fest is a vibrant evening filled with fire walking, live music from the incredible Mad Dog Mcrae (optional), fun games from special guests Hyped Events, live animal talks and a unique after hours zoo experience that not only offers entertainment unlike anything Dartmoor Zoo has ever done before, but also providing a platform to support our Conservation Charity and the endangered animal ambassadors that reside here.

Taking place on Saturday 17th August from 16:30, whether your adrenaline junkie side wants to walk on fire, or you want to attend and party the night away, we’ve got multiple ticket options to keep you covered.


Ticket option 1: Fire walk – whilst fundraising (£100 minimum donation)

Whilst demonstrating your bravery, take part in our charity fire walk. The person who raises the greatest funds will win a Meet the Tiger experience!!

Access to the zoo, a BBQ meal and a drink are included within the price of your ticket, and an upgrade for Mad Dog Mcrea entry is available at checkout!

Pay just £20 to secure your place today and the remainder of your balance needs to be cleared one week before the event takes place (Saturday 10th August). There is a minimum requirement of £100 funds raised to participate.

We will provide information to fundraisers on how to set up a JustGiving page connected to our Fire Fest fundraising page.

Alternatively, if you wish to fund it immediately, you can do so by securing your deposit today and either calling us to pay over the phone or donating the remaining funds via our fundraising page.

Ticket option 2: General admission

If you want to experience the fire walk but without getting your toes warm, why not attend Fire Fest as a viewer? With a BBQ meal and a drink included within the price of your ticket, plus Zoo admission, access to Hyped Events and our live animal talks, it’s set out to be a truly WILD evening!

Upgrades for Mad Dog Mcrea tickets are available at checkout!

Don’t miss out, places are limited, so make sure to secure yours today!
