Visitors of all abilities will go wild for a free day at the Chattanooga Zoo at Warner Park during the 10th Annual Go!Fest!

Guests are treated to a free day at the zoo for people of all ages and abilities.  This is an event that celebrates the accessibility of the city, and takes away the stigma of being disabled.  It is an opportunity for people of all abilities to meet, greet, and play together.  Along with being able to see and interact with the animals in the zoo, there will be adaptive athletics, including wheelchair basketball and cycling, live music and helicopter landings. Animal attractions and interactions abound, but breaking boundaries and increasing disability awareness are at the heart of Go!Fest, which also will showcase activities, entertainment and information from various social service agencies and other civic-minded groups, businesses and institutions.

Go!Fest is part of an initiative created to help make Chattanooga more accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability.

The Chattanooga Zoo is located at 1254 East 3rd Street.  For directions, call: 423-697-1322.

For more information about Go!Fest please contact the Mayor's Office at 423-425-7800 or email Phillip Stevens at Stevens_P@Chattanooga.gov.

**The Chattanooga Tennessee Organization of the Deaf-Blind (TODB) group will have a booth set up at Go!Fest again this year.
