Plan an Event at the Zoo

There’s so much you can do at the Zoo! The natural setting of the Virginia Zoo with its well-appointed landscapes, gardens and public spaces – is the picture-perfect location for your group event. We offer different options for various types of events.  But two variables are standard with all Virginia Zoo event packages: originality and fun. We can even help ensure your event is environmentally friendly!!!
