Facilities and Capacity

The Reserve can accommodate up to 1,000 guests for wedding receptions. The newest event space looks out over the stunning African Savanna where giraffe, antelope, and African birds roam. A paved floor under the tent ensures no shoes will sink into the grass and there is plenty of room for dancing. The Portraits of the Wild Art Gallery is a room in the round that houses a world-renowned collection of wildlife art. This elegant venue is available for groups of 75 – 150. Located deep in the heart of the turn of the century Texas Town is the Bluebonnet Café and deck where up to 400 guests can spend an evening under a beautiful Texas sunset. From boots to black tie, this incredible exhibit is perfect for any Texas-themed wedding or reception.

    They were amazing! They set all my decorations and made everything perfect! I loved that I didn’t have to worry about having to get my own food or drinks since they had a worked for me and my hubbys table! If I had to do it all over again I would book here again!!

    This unique venue is awesome! We had our son’s rehearsal dinner here and everything was perfect. Emily (Event Coordinator) and Ashley (Director of Catering) were a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond for our event. The evening was beautiful and memorable-I would give the zoo and it’s event staff 10 stars if I could!!

    We had both our ceremony and reception at the Fort Worth Zoo. The ceremony was held on the deck outside of the Portraits of the Wild Art Gallery and it was beautiful! The reception was inside the gallery. We had the Wild Wonders Animal Presentation, where the WW staff brought around 4 animals to each table during the reception. We got to pose with the animals and all our guests thought it was so cool and unique to have animals at our wedding. The Zoo catered the food and we got so many compliments on it! The staff was wonderful and they made sure everything ran smoothly. I loved this venue because it was beautiful and unique.
