Why Les Fest?

Les Fest celebrates Alexandria Zoo and former zoo director Leslie "Les" Whitt, who dedicated his life to serving the citizens of Alexandria and promoting the conservation of the world’s wildlife. Two of Whitt’s great loves included the Alexandria Zoo and music, both of which take center stage at Les Fest.

We're cooking up an untamed evening bursting with flavor.
