Host an Event at the Zoo


Companies that make an unrestricted donation to the Zoo are invited to co-host a special event in celebration of their gift at one of the Zoo's various event sites. Your contribution supports the Zoo's important wildlife conservation, science and public education programs. Donation levels are dependent on event site, time of event and group size. Donations are tax-deductible and do not include any direct event costs such as catering, tents or additional expenses.

PLEASE NOTE: Events of a personal nature, such as weddings, as well as fundraising, product marketing, religious, commercially ticketed and political functions, are not permitted. Corporate events must comply with Smithsonian policies and guidelines.

For more information on locations, availability, and booking, please contact us or call 202.633.3045
