About Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is a zoo and wedding venue located in Pittsburgh’s Highland Park. Couples have the freedom of selecting from three unique event spaces that all have their own special atmosphere. Once a location is chosen, take advantage of our wedding packages to ensure that your celebration is everything that you want it to be! Imagine walking past a group of polar bears on your way to the PPG Aquarium or looking out over a dense collection of vibrant trees while you have your first dance under the Garden Tent. Get in touch with Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium today to reserve your spot at this exotic venue!

Facilities and Capacity
The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium offers not one, but three venues that will amaze and entertain your friends and family. With vibrant aquatic life, a lush rainforest, and cascading waterfalls, the PPG Aquarium makes an unparalleled event setting. Lose yourself amongst hundreds of animal species ranging from the tiny cuttlefish to the six-foot-long South American arapaima. At the exquisite Water's Edge, begin the night on Pier Town, a coastal village complete with sea lions, polar bears, sea otters, and rescued northern elephant seals, and end with an underwater experience like no other. Surrounded by lavish foliage and botanical gardens, the Garden Tent is a grand venue for any elegant occasion.

NEW! We are excited to introduce I Do at the Zoo, a new add-on that allows you to include a ceremony with your wedding reception package. With a built in, day-of event coordinator, you will have everything you need to start your forever. We take care of everything within the Zoo, from setup to execution and even clean up, so you can enjoy every moment of your special day. An additional $500 fee. Ceremonies must be held in the same space as the reception.

    The Pittsburgh Zoo did a fantastic job putting together our wedding. Dave and Gabby were great and they all answered any questions very quickly. My guests really enjoyed the location, and had a great time in the aquarium. The Pittsburgh Zoo is a great place to have any event. They really made our special day into a wonderful memory. It was also much easier to plan the wedding by coordinating with the zoo staff, and by having a package that included linens and such.
