With its exotic gardens, majestic ocean and mountain views, and its diverse animal collection, the Santa Barbara Zoo is the ideal setting for your wedding day. From black-tie affairs, to beach-themed barbeques, our lush garden setting provides a beautiful backdrop for your event and offers your guests an experience they'll never forget.

Catering, beverage and rental services are coordinated through Zoo Catering Services by Rincon. ZCS offers a wide-range of menu and service styles to fit your needs and ensure your event is a success!

The Santa Barbara Zoo offers many after-hours options to enhance your event and keep your guests entertained. You may choose to leave the animals out on display after closing or keep the train running exclusively for your guests. Add an exotic, tropical flair to your event with a bird greeting or photo opportunity while your guests are arriving. After the park closes at 5:00 p.m., your guests will have the entire Zoo to roam and enjoy in privacy.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is a private, nonprofit organization. Revenues from private events support the operation and development of the Zoo, help support conservation efforts, and enrich our education programs.
Santa Barbara Zoo has received approximately 44 profile views in the last three months.
