Take your guests to the wild side!

America’s first zoo offers a wide range of venues to serve as the scene for your next special occasion. Whether you are interested in an early-morning fundraiser for your favorite cause, an afternoon family picnic or an evening celebration with friends, the Zoo is a truly unique setting that will leave your guests with memories to last a lifetime.

In an effort to redirect resources towards mission-based initiatives, the Zoo does not offer children’s birthday party packages or event bookings for groups of less than 50 people at this time. Guests interested in hosting less than 50 people or a visit to the Zoo in celebration of a birthday can learn more about group tickets here.
