RendeZoo 2018 was the wildest party in town as one of John Ball Zoo’s largest fundraising events of the year. It’s an outdoor party, with more than 500 guests, food, music, silent auction, and animal encounters. Proceeds support the Zoo and its mission to inspire our community to be actively engaged in the conservation of wildlife and our natural environment. Thank you for celebrating with us!
