Private Events

In accordance with City and County policies that do not allow large gatherings, we currently are unable to offer private events.

Looking for a unique location to entertain and inspire your guests at your next event?


The Los Angeles Zoo offers a variety of beautiful natural locations for parties with 20 to 2000 guests. These outdoor venues are ideal settings for cocktail receptions, company picnics, corporate dinners, galas, wrap parties, family reunions, trade shows and milestone events, including baby or wedding showers, engagement parties, quinceañeras, and more. Many special enhancements can be added to private events, including animal encounters.
