With more than 1,300 rare and endangered animals from around the world situated on 42 acres of lush Victorian gardens, Philadelphia Zoo offers the perfect setting for your next day or evening event. Picnic with the peacocks, lunch with the lemurs or barbeque with the bears – the possibilities are endless when you book a daytime event at the Zoo!

At an evening event at the Zoo, your guests can sip cocktails immersed in a world of brilliantly colored birds, dine in the midst of majestic great apes and celebrate in glamorous style with our rare and exotic big cats.

America’s first zoo offers a wide range of spaces and locations to serve as the scene for your special occasion.

Choose from a LEED-certified building with world-class educational demonstrations, floor-to-ceiling glass exhibits that let your guests get “within inches” of their favorite creatures, or outdoor plazas with breathtaking views of nature and magnificent fountains.
