Make your next celebration a wild affair! Our three-hour zoo parties include use of our Zoo Operations Building, a custom zoo tour, and an educational animal program with an animal encounter.

Parties are available:

  • Saturdays: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
  • Sundays: 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Please note that due to space limitations and Zoo Summer Camp, zoo parties are not available during the months of June and July. Also, please book early as spaces fill up quickly!

Reservations must be made at least 3 weeks prior to the date of your party and are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
