Mark your calendars and save your appetite for your favorite Carmen’s Cafe dishes at Jazzoo, the Kansas City Zoo’s largest annual fundraiser on June 3, 2016! We’re excited to be supporting the event for the third year in a row. It’s always import to us to be involved in the community and with all the funds going towards taking care of the more than 1,100 animals at our local zoo in addition to educating local youth with the Zoo Fund, Carmen’s wouldn’t miss it for the world!


This year’s theme will be “An Evening Down Under’ where we’ll be celebrating the zoo’s newest guests; two adorable koalas! The event’s tradition of dressing in “creative black tie” continues this year, which means don’t be afraid to go above and beyond with the animal print! We are looking forward to being a part of this year’s even bigger and wilder party!


At Carmen’s booth, we’ll be serving everyone’s in-house favorites; Chicken Spiedini Carmela, Judy’s Rigatoni, and Sautéed Asparagus. Along with the delicious unlimited food, there will be drinks and entertainment, so prepare for an exciting night.

In past decade, Jazzoo has raised over $8 million dollars to go towards the animals and local education! We hope to see you at this year’s wild night.

Tickets will be available all the way up to the day of, but you can buy yours at this link today. We’ll be seeing you soon, Kansas City!
