Fresno Chaffee Zoo wants to make your special day a truly unforgettable one, full of fun, great food and wild animals! We provide you the rare opportunity to take your event out of the ordinary into the extraordinary. With several unique venues to choose from, the Zoo offers natural settings from small, intimate weddings to large celebrations.



Fresno Chaffee Zoo offers an assortment of beautiful venues for any type of special event. Our Rainforest Lawn features a long and dramatic pathway leading to a tropical garden area amidst the backdrop of the Tropical Rainforest. This venue accommodates from 50-100 guests depending on your desired set up. If you are in need of a semi-casual setting, for a wedding ceremony perhaps, the Winged Wonders Bird Show amphitheater offers tiered bench seating with a decorative back drop. Just steps from the amphitheater is our Dining Garden, a spacious lawn area accommodating our larger parties with space for a band or disc jockey and a dance floor. Your guests will be delighted dancing the night away under a canopy of stars. Be transported to the California coast with the sound of gentle waves and our beautiful Sea Lion Cove exhibit as your backdrop. You may even have a sea lion join you on the rock as you recite your vows or glide by as you dine on a delicious meal. Our newest exhibit, African Adventure, offers four new venues, each very unique and beautiful. These exclusive venues are unlike any other in the valley. With any venue or attraction you choose, you and your guests will share a wild and enchanted evening strolling the lush and picturesque surroundings of Fresno Chaffee Zoo Read less

When my husband and I began looking for different venues we wanted something versatile, unique and a great place for lots of kids to be at a wedding. Our wedding at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo was a fun, family oriented wedding. The entire night our guests had a chance to roam the zoo and interact with the animals after the zoo had closed. Pam and Megan provided outstanding services for our wedding. Our location was gorgeous and their event planning services helped to make my pre-planning and choosing vendors for the wedding extremely easy. My husband and I had such a wonderful time and I would recommend this venue to any brides who want a different and unforgettable experience!

We held our reception at the Zoo. It was a wonderful experience. The Zoo has several "venues" but the only one big enough for a wedding reception is the Dining Garden, located at the back of the facility. The area is a beautiful lawn, pre-strung with lights and plenty of space. The part we liked best about using this venue is that at 5pm, when our reception began, the Zoo closed to the public but remained open to our guests. Granted, this took away a little bit from our dancefloor, but hey, you get to wander the Zoo at night!

Currently, the wedding coordinator at the Zoo is Pam Wheelan. She is very well-organized, extremely helpful and very pleasant to work with.
