Birthday Parties

Thank you for your interest in hosting your child’s birthday party at Philadelphia Zoo! Although we don't currently offer a birthday party package, we do offer a picnic package for families interested in celebrating a birthday at America’s first zoo.

Picnic packages at Philadelphia Zoo include admission to the Zoo, allowing event guests to explore and learn about wildlife, and exclusive access to a private venue for four hours. All private event packages start at 50 people but can be adjusted for additional guests as needed.

Catering for your birthday picnic will be provided by our exclusive on-site caterer. Please contact the Zoo’s catering director at 215-243-5236 for more information on menu offerings.
