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 ...

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!

But the major perks: great for out-of-town guests to enjoy the zoo, amazing food with a great selection (we had breakfast for dinner!), wonderful staff to help you prep for everything you could ever need, and a bunch of options for space requirements (anywhere from 80-350).
