About Our Venue

Whether celebrating your nuptials or treating your clients to a night out, San Francisco Zoo Events & Hospitality has something to wow every guest! By day, our verdant lawns offer private picnic space surrounded by outdoor entertainment. By night, our outdoor exhibits transform into an unexpected sanctuary to host your cocktail party. Get up close and personal with our wild friends by feeding romaine to our towering giraffes or cuddling up with Miles the alligator. If exotic creatures and rustic charm are not enough, mouth-watering menus by executive chefs complete the package.

By hosting your event at the Zoo, you are helping provide a better world for animals through education and conservation efforts both locally and internationally.
