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!

Our wedding at the Calgary Zoo was an amazing experience! Our wonderful event coordinator was Robin, and she was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. She was always prompt with responding to emails, and made sure to answer any questions we had. We were married in the Enmax Conservatory, and there's many locations around the gardens and grounds for beautiful photos. All of the event staff were professional, and they really went above and beyond to ensure our day went off without a hitch. The food was incredible, and kitchen staff went out of their way to accommodate any guests with dietary restrictions. We had many compliments from all the guests on the venue and service. I would definitely recommend the Calgary Zoo to everyone searching for an event 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.

We got married at Grazers at Calgary Zoo and it was fantastic. We were lucky enough to have Robin as our event coordinator. Robin was one of the reasons we booked the Calgary Zoo as our venue. We looked forward to meeting with Robin throughout the planning process as she was such a joy to work with and she really made sure we had an unforgettable day. The staff on the day of the wedding were absolutely amazing. Shane and his team made sure we had everything we needed on the day and constantly checked in to see if there was anything else they could do for us. The food was outstanding and our guests said it was the best meal they have ever had. Thanks to Robin, Shane and the rest of the staff at the Zoo, the day was better than we ever could have dreamed of.

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.
