Say “I Do” at the Zoo!

Imagine saying “I do” while overlooking the giraffe yard or overhearing the roar of lions. Your special day deserves a unique and extraordinary backdrop that dares to take a walk on the wild side. Choose from four ceremony sites and have your reception at Flamingo Lake Patio with nearby weeping willows and charming flamingos. Guests will enjoy exotic plants, animals, and scenery in a private and serene environment, creating memories that will be talked about for years to come. You can even host your cocktail hour alongside the carousel or send your guests for a ride on the Zoo Train!

Nestled in the classically beautiful William Land Park, the Sacramento Zoo offers a truly one-of-a-kind setting for the most important day of your life! Let our professional staff assist you in creating an experience you and your guests will never forget.


Please note that due to COVID-19 precautions, private event opportunities may be currently limited. Email for more information.

Weddings are booked April through October only. All ceremonies must begin no earlier than 5:15 pm after the zoo closes and has been cleared of the general public.
