VIP Party at 6 - 7 :30 PM; RendeZoo at 7 - 10:30 PM

Welcome to the wildest party in town! RendeZoo is one of the Zoo’s most important fundraisers of the season. And, this year, we’re celebrating RendeZoo’s 30th anniversary!

RendeZoo is a fun outdoor evening featuring food, live entertainment, and special animal encounters. You won't want to miss our silent auction filled with specialty items and gifts!


What does RendeZoo support? For 30 years, our proud RendeZoo sponsors and donors have helped fund important projects and improvements throughout the Zoo including the animal hospital, chimpanzee exhibit, and forest realm, to name a few. Proceeds from RendeZoo 2019 will help further the Zoo’s efforts to educate children and families, save endangered species, and celebrate wildlife with our community.
