John Ball Zoo

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

John Ball Zoo serves over 450,000 visitors per year. In fact, we are the fourth most attended attraction in the state of Michigan! Our guests are almost exclusively families with children 14 years and younger. They visit an average of two times per year and their stay is about 3 hours. The most common answer we hear when we ask our visitors why they came to the Zoo is "It is a great place to get together with family". When people are happy and enjoying themselves with family, that is when you want them to see your message! We have many traffic-building, high profile, community centered partnership opportunities that fulfill all your needs and budget!
