A Wildlife Celebration

What a wild ride the last 30 years have been! As John Ball Zoo’s largest and longest-running fundraiser, we are excited to introduce some exciting changes to RendeZoo 2020.

RendeZoo will feature area restaurants and food partners for a unique strolling dinner. We will infuse the air with fun and music like always before and get you up close with animal favorites. Also, you won’t want to miss our popular mobile silent auction filled with specialty gifts and experiences! Check back soon as we update you with participating restaurants, entertainment, and auction items!

Are you ready to celebrate?
