Unforgettable Events on the Wild Side

David Schacher Photography LLC

Choosing the right venue for your corporate meeting, family reunion or epic party is one of the most important event decisions you can make. It can mean the difference between guests wanting to stay and enjoy themselves or people keeping an eye on the clock and the door.

At the Phoenix Zoo, we pride ourselves on creating one-of-a-kind experiences that guests will never forget. Located within the spectacular Papago Park, our unique destination not only cares for more than 3,000 animals but also provides a backdrop for memorable events of all types.

The Zoo’s 16 indoor and outdoor venues can accommodate 20 up to 1,000 seated guests or several thousand reception-style, making it the perfect venue for formal galas, informal meetings, large corporate parties and everything in between. With so much to choose from, the Zoo can make ANY event dream a reality.

From lush tropical settings to the splendid beauty of the Sonoran Desert, our outdoor venues embrace the Zoo’s stunning surroundings. Celebrate in the festive Forest of Uco, beside the serene Savanna Overlook or perhaps under the stars at Desert Tents.

Our indoor venues are wildly popular and include the expansive C.W. & Modene Neely Education and Event Center, the elegant Stone House Pavilion and secluded Ruby’s House, with twinkling lights and private, picturesque patio.

Select from a list of the Valley’s top caterers, offering customized menus, specifically designed for you and your guests. Our staff excels in delivering superior hospitality from initial booking and planning to your event day. With the added benefit of free on-grounds parking and flexible scheduling, you can rest assured the Phoenix Zoo will make your experience exceptional and bring your vision to life.

Furthermore, when you book an event at the non-profit Phoenix Zoo, your dollars go directly to caring for our animals and supporting our ongoing efforts in wildlife and nature conservation. Hosting an event can inspire an amazing feeling of philanthropy.

Come to the wild side and let the Phoenix Zoo help make your event a roaring success!
