We had our wedding reception in the Enmax conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Such an amazing time! It is a great venue if you are planning a smaller wedding. Food was amazing and and Robin and staff were amazing!

If you want a family-friendly reception with amazing food, great photo backdrops and an incredible staff, check this place out! We had an amazing time at our reception and received nothing but compliments for the space. It is quite pricey, so I wouldn't recommend it if you need ...

Love, Love LOVED working with the Zoo! We got married outside and had our reception in the Enmax conservatory - what a wonderful place to get married.

Definitely recommended especially if you are looking for something fun and a little bit different.

Great location for our wedding, we had our ceremony out in the Arbour Garden and the reception in the Conservatory, it was a beautiful location and the staff were all super helpful and wonderful to work with. Added bonus, guests wandered around the zoo while we took our pictures!
