About MWCDO’s Roaring 20’s Casino Night

Step back in time to the roaring twenties and join us for a night of glitz, glamour, and gambling at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo! The venue will be transformed into a speakeasy-style casino, complete with blackjack, poker, roulette, and craps tables.

Guests will be able to enjoy a ride on the carousel while sipping on prohibition-era cocktails and listening to live music.  You are welcome to dress up in 1920’s attire for the event and show off your best flapper dress or gangster suit. The event is for a good cause, and all proceeds will go towards supporting Metro West Community Development Organization.

Join us for this perfect opportunity to step back in time and experience the glamour and excitement of the 1920s, a night of fun, games, and fundraising at The Roaring 20’s Casino Night!

We hope to see you there!
