Don’t worry—we will have dog rescues out all day in our new Zodiac Zoo in the Arts District, featuring rescues dedicated to the animals found in the Chinese Zodiac.
Plus, for the fifth year in a row, there will be an exclusive VIP lounge at Savor Gastropub in Klyde Warren Park available for members of the Friends of the Crow Collection, located next to the main stage. Become a member today for an exclusive CNY experience: http://crowcollection.org/
