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 your wedding ceremony and reception. Rainforest Lawn features a long and dramatic pathway leading to a tropical garden area accommodating from 50-100 guests. If you would like a semi-casual setting for your ceremony, 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. Giraffe Vista and Flamingo Plaza, located near the animals from which they were named, are able to accommodate groups up to 100. Read less

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.
