Friends of the National Zoo

The National Zoo offers extraordinary event spaces and the opportunity to co-host corporate events such as company picnics, cocktail receptions, and dinners in the heart of DC surrounded by magnificent wildlife in a fun and educational environment.

Let us customize a perfectly wild event for you! From catering and tents to group activities and entertainment, we can take care of all the arrangements for 10 to 10,000 people. With unique ways to amaze, inform, and entertain your guests, creating a memorable event is easy at the Zoo! Your imagination and our living exhibits make every event at the Zoo unique.

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, tent rental or additional expenses.

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