So many great venues at the Zoo!

Cocktails with our bears? Hors d’oeuvres alongside the prairie dogs? Some Zoo exhibits are also available for rentals! Areas such as Polar Bear Watch, Penguin Education Center, Schaefer Plaza, and Zoo Central can be reserved for early evening cocktail events. Celebration Hill and the Zoo Central Pavilion can serve as a home base for your team building event. You can even rent the entire Zoo for your fundraising walk or gala.

Zoo exhibit rentals are subject to availability, staffing, and other restrictions.
