Mark your calendars:

A Zoo Ado presented by Wells Fargo has been moved to September 2020

Keeping the safety of our guests, staff and animals as our first priority, we have decided to reschedule our major fundraiser of the year to a new date after Labor Day. We will communicate our chosen date as the time gets closer. We look forward to seeing you then! Thank you very much for your support. 

The Zoo’s Biggest Party of the Year

We invite you to party for a purpose at A Zoo Ado 2020! Eat, drink and dance the night away while supporting the Zoo’s important animal care and conservation work. No other fundraiser in St. Louis has a unique party backdrop like the world-class Saint Louis Zoo!

Sip & Savor

Roam around the Zoo and discover a variety of sweet and savory cuisine at food stations located near some of our animals' exhibits. Then, grab your drink of choice at one of our premium open bars serving beer, wine and specialty cocktails.   

Entertainment

Award-winning national party band Party on the Moon is back by popular demand to dazzle guests with current dance, 80s, classic rock, disco/funk, R&B, Motown and new country sounds and moves.

Zoo-themed Special Activities

There are many fun ways to enjoy the Zoo throughout the night, like riding on the Conservation Carousel or Zooline Railroad! The party will also feature a wine pull, animal-themed photo opportunities and a silent auction featuring Zoo packages, such as behind-the-scenes experiences at Polar Bear Point, Sea Lion Sound, and Penguin & Puffin Coast.

What to Wear

Guests are encouraged to wear fun, animal-inspired summer attire and comfortable shoes to graze around the Zoo.
