Events

From Boo at the Zoo, Art Gone Wild and Cookies with Santa for families and kids of all ages, to awareness-building events like Endangered Species Day, to Brew at the Zoo and Sippin’ Safari for guests 21 and up, we’ve got something fun for everyone!

Interested in having a sponsorship presence at one of our signature events? Zoo Atlanta offers a wide variety of day sponsorships which allow companies to reach consumers directly in a fun and uncluttered environment. These events include special animal demonstrations, storytellers, raffles, live music, discounted admission offers, and more. The events are tailored to meet the marketing objectives of our corporate partners and result in maximum exposure. Contact Morena Lamothe for more information.
