Each Rental is different and unique. Please read through the information to discover which venue will fit your private event.

Things you need to know:

 

Payment and Booking

You can book your rental space between two weeks and 18 months prior to your date. You’ll pay 50% of your total fee at booking and the remaining balance on the date of your event.

 

Wristbands
Wristbands are a very important part of your rental. The Rental Coordinator will provide you with wristbands that then must be given to all attendees over the age of 2 years, including those who are Zoo members. Wristbands must be given to your guests prior to your event. This helps our gate staff identify that your guests are with a private event and have already been paid for.  An accurate count of your guests is very important. 

Catering and Food

Each party is able to contract with a caterer of their choice or bring in their own food and non-alcoholic drinks. A bar with a variety of canned alcoholic drinks is available for an additional fee. The zoo does not have a food prep area for rentals. See venue details for electricity availability. 

 

For the safety of our guests and our animals:

  • No balloons, straws, confetti, rice, or pets.

  • The Pueblo Zoo is a non-smoking facility. 

  • Sound checks will be required for any rental that will be using microphones or speakers for music. 

  • Remember the animals are joining in on your event, too.
