Bring The Zoo to You - Outreach Booths for Fairs and Festivals

Do you have a fair, festival, or special event that includes booth-style interactions for your guests?  Denver Zoo reaches beyond its boundaries and into the community with dynamic, interactive booth experiences featuring live animals, bio-facts (such as skins and bones) and/or promotional materials.  Participants engage in one-on-one conversations with our educators about the animals and biofacts they see and touch, and experience up-close encounters with our live animals.  

Additional Information

Due to the nature of live animals, Denver Zoo Outreach cannot guarantee which animals are at any class. Animals in programs may eat nuts.  Be aware of allergies

Booth area should be far away from loud noise sources (es. Performance stages, firetrucks with loud sirens, etc.) There may be circumstances where Denver Zoo Outreach deems animal presence as unfit, and booths may or may not include animals or biofacts due to weather constraints (65-85 degrees F is acceptable for most animals).

Denver Zoo Outreach space requirements:

  • Ground level or elevator access.
  • An unloading and parking area close to the program location, with access for a rolling cart.
