John Ball Zoo

6:00 pm VIP Party ∙ 7:00 pm Main Event

RendeZoo is one of John Ball Zoo’s largest fundraising events of the year; a casual outdoor party that draws a crowd of more than 600 guests. This evening of mingling, food, and entertainment supports the Zoo’s important mission to inspire people to be active participants in the conservation of wildlife and our natural environment. Proceeds at RendeZoo are dedicated to implementing capital projects outlined in the Zoo’s Master Facilities Plan. We hope you will join us in supporting this important event with a sponsorship, attendance, or bids on our mobile auction!

VIP ticket holders and sponsors can expect early bird access to the event at the Bissell Treehouse beginning at 6 pm by flying up on the Idema Funicular! Throughout the Zoo, you and your guests will experience entertainment, appetizers, cocktails, and special animal encounters. The main event will start at 7 pm with a strolling supper in central plaza as well as a silent and live auction! Don't forget an awesome band  that is sure to make you dance like a “flock” star! 

Thank you to our 2017 RendeZoo Sponsors!
