Denver Zoo offers an inspiring, energizing and decidedly unique venue to create a memorable event your guests will talk about for a long time to come. Best of all, by choosing Denver Zoo for your event you’re helping us secure a better world for animals.
Explore Denver Zoo like never before! The VIP Adventure Package is a perfect gift with a private Zoo experience hosted by an expert guide designed to get animal lovers up-close and behind the scenes with many of our most popular animals. From feeding giraffes to getting to know our llamas, lorikeets, okapis, and our charismatic resident otter family, this is a memory-making experience unlike any other. VIP Adventure guests learn firsthand how we care for our residents, meet members of our animal care team and see the Zoo from a very unique and exciting perspective. This is a full day experience, from 9AM – 2PM and includes snacks and a private, catered lunch.
Think outside of the banquet-hall-box for your next corporate event. Whether your “pack” is gathering for an employee appreciation event, company picnic, quarterly meeting, team building, conference or you’re looking to wow your newest clients, Denver Zoo is an inspiring, energizing, and decidedly unique venue. Add an animal demonstration or other enhancements and you’ll be set for a roaring good time! Our event specialists treat you as the “mane” attraction and cater to your needs offering amazing experiences, distinctive menus and a beautiful atmosphere, making every event remarkable.
Zoo Lights provides the perfect backdrop for holiday celebrations. Come and experience a light safari with more than 60 brilliantly-illuminated acres of lights, featuring more than 150 animated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns, hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. As part of the event rental package you will receive a private room and admission to Zoo Lights.
Denver Zoo’s beautiful outdoor or indoor venues- complete with rare and exotic wildlife- provide the perfect space to gather with the ones that mean the most to you, from family members to classmates, teammates and friends.
