San Francisco Zoo, founded in 1929 and located just off Ocean Beach, is one of the most unique venues in the Bay Area for hosting your next event. All Zoo profits from your event will go towards our conservation projects, helping critically endangered animals and their habitats around the world. Whether planning your next corporate meeting, family picnic, team offsite or annual holiday-year end event, we’ll work with you to customize a get-together your guests won’t soon forget.

“I was looking for a venue to hold a summer picnic for 1300 people that was family friendly and fun for both adults and children on short notice. I chose the zoo for a couple of reasons. One thing . . . . ”
