At Barn Hill Preserve of Delaware we strive to educate the public about animals and nature!
Sippin' with Sloths allows us to follow safety guidelines while also educating the 21-and-over crowd about our terrific two-toed sloth animal ambassadors!
Each Sippin' with Sloths event is held at a small, local winery in the Eastern Shore of Delaware and Maryland!
Tickets are sold by table size and include: a beverage for each seat, a private sloth encounter for your group, a 4x6 glossy print of your encounter, and the opportunity to hand-feed a sloth! Tables are limited so that we can appropriately social distance based on the space of each venue.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are children allowed to attend?
No. These events are 21+ but we do have other ways for children to meet our sloths! We offer sloth encounters after our Kangaroo Yoga classes and during our Family Fun Day events!
Are pets allowed?
No. We ask that you don’t bring your pet to the event with you. Sloths are solitary animals and do not like being around pets. Also, as the weather shifts to cooler temperatures we will be having these events indoors.
Why can’t I buy tickets for a certain day?
If there is no option to purchase tickets for a date, that date has sold out. You can try one of our other dates or keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for future events!
We sell tickets as tables. Each winery has different amounts of each table size available ranging from tables for 2-10 people. If you have a full table, the price is $40/person.
Can I buy part of a table?
No. Each location has limited tables available and in order to keep everybody safe and to comply with Covid-19 rules we can not sell tables to more than one group. You can purchase a larger table and bring less people, but you will still pay the full price for that table.
I bought a table and am now unable to attend the event. What do I do?
Because this is an event that requires pre registration and has limited space, we typically do not issue refunds or credits. If you purchased tickets and are unable to attend the event you can post on our facebook page to see if anybody else would like to buy the tickets from you. We can then transfer the tickets to the new registrant.
Where is the event located?
Our Sippin’ with Sloths events are NOT held at our Delaware facility. We partner with local wineries in Maryland and Delaware. Check our calendar and your tickets to see where we will be at throughout the month!
Can I touch the sloths?
No. Sloths are solitary animals and touch stresses them out. You are able to hand feed our sloths a snack and get lots of up-close photos, keeping both you and our sloths safe and happy!
Is the event rain or shine?
Yes. Participants will be indoors or under shelter and we have shelter for our sloths.
