About Fort Worth Zoo

The Fort Worth Zoo in Texas invites couples to go wild on their wedding day. This unique location has multiple charming spaces to accommodate 75-1,000 guests. Event spaces include The Reserve at the African Savanna, the Portraits of the Wild Art Gallery and a rustic Texas Town with indoor event space. The zoo is located ten minutes from downtown Fort Worth.

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.

    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.

    We held our rehearsal dinner in the Portrait of the Wild Art Gallery. Jordan and Emily were my contacts and they were incredibly helpful. There was not one glitch in our evening thanks to them. The food was amazing and the venue was incredible. All of our guests had a wonderful time and loved the uniqueness of the location. I have recommended this location to several friends.
