Group Events

The Zoo is a great location for corporate parties and group events of all kinds. Our Events Department is trained to take you through all the planning stages to ensure that you have a successful and memorable event, whether it is a casual picnic or a black-tie affair.

Each event has the option of full-service catering, formal or casual setup, and optional Wild Activities including Stingray Bay, Ross Laird’s Winged Wonders Bird Show, and giraffe feeding. 

Several different venues are available to rent throughout the Zoo, each with its own unique atmosphere and seating capacity. Every event is customized to meet your needs and is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

With an array of venues to choose from, we’ll make your dream wedding, reception or corporate event a reality. Some favorite venues are:

  • Canopy Grove
  • Rainforest Lawn
  • Sea Lion Cove
  • Event Garden
