Celebrate at the zoo

When it comes to setting a truly exotic stage for your special event, no place compares to the El Paso Zoo. Enjoy the Zoo during or after-hours in an extraordinary setting unlike anywhere else in town.


Join the pride and join the fun! Whether you're planning a birthday party for a herd of kids, a reunion or wedding for your fine-feathered friends or a business luncheon or company picnic for a pack of co-workers - think outside of the banquet hall box and join us at the El Paso Zoo.

Your wild experience begins once you enter the main gate into the Zoo’s expansive green space! When you combine our “one-of-a-kind” atmosphere, first-class facilities and mouthwatering menus, you’ve got an unbeatable combination for a celebration! The Zoo has an executive chef on staff and the catering department takes care of all the details so you can enjoy celebrating with your party. The El Paso 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 to host an event at the Zoo, you’re helping us secure a better world for animals worldwide!
