This was the most beautiful venue! We booked the Enmax Conservatory at the Zoo for the reception and had the ceremony in the private garden behind the building. The zoo Coordinator Robin was phenomenal to work with and so accommodating. The food was spectacular and we could not have asked for a more stunning venue!

The Calgary Zoo was Amazing from Beginning to End!

THANK YOU! The Calgary Zoo was the perfect venue and made our special day beyond anything we imagined. From initial planning to final details - the Calgary Zoo team was so great to work with. No request was too big or too small. This venue was perfect, we wanted an outdoor ceremony an indoor reception and we ended up having a lot of families and kids as guests. The Calgary Zoo brought every aspect of what we wanted together perfectly. Thank you especially to Robin and her team. They contacted our vendors (musicians, bakery, Justice of the Peace, etc.) all prior to ensure everyone had all information prior. And the catering - our guests were complimenting the chef and kitchen staff all night as the dinner and desserts were unreal. Thank you Calgary Zoo, our wedding day was amazing thanks to all of you.

Special Zoo Wedding

The Calgary Zoo was a wonderful venue. We got married at Grazers which was gorgeous, the perfect winter wedding location. With so many indoor places for photos nearby, we didn’t have to worry too much about the weather (40 below and snowing!). The staff was amazing. When the zoo event coordinator was unable to make it due to the weather, the catering staff stepped up. They helped to bring in flowers and walked me and the bridesmaids to the venue before the ceremony! The food was amazing and the bar staff did a great job. Having my wedding at the zoo was very special.

We had an amazing experience with the Calgary Zoo. We had our wedding in the Safari Lodge- Robin was extremely responsive, helpful, and went above and beyond to make our day special. I can't say enough good things about the Zoo - I would recommend it to everyone!

The Calgary Zoo was amazing! The day couldn't have gone any better than it did! The staff were SO helpful, kind, and understanding. Before the ceremony, the sound wasn't working, and the staff were on it faster than I could say "I do!". Robin Eriksen was beyond wonderful! If you're looking for a magical place to have your wedding, look no further. All our guests LOVED it! Highly recommend!
