About Bronx Zoo

Looking for an alternative to traditional outdoor venues? Say "I Do” at the Zoo!
The Bronx Zoo offers the ultimate “one of a kind” experience for you and your guests and has the perfect combination of elegance and fun, with two park locations to choose from. For more intimate gatherings there is the exotic locale of the Congo Gorilla Forest. For larger celebrations there is The Schiff Family Great Hall. The Historic Astor Court located adjacent to the Beaux-Arts Zoo Center, is reminiscent of old world graces. Imagine exchanging vows in a romantic ceremony outside among the free roaming Indian Peacocks. If you prefer an indoor ceremony celebrate your nuptials in the Zoo Center. For cocktail hours guests can sip cocktails in the Madagascar exhibit alongside Lemurs, Nile Crocodiles and other curious creatures. Or mingle with your guests outside with the California Sea Lions, followed by fine dining in the Schiff Family Great Hall. The spacious hall is reflective of timeless architecture and is a LEED certified historic landmark building. The event staff will work with you to ensure that your wedding celebration at the zoo is unforgettable.

    The Bronx Zoo is by far the best wedding venue in NYC. First the place is beautiful. My guests were stunned by the architecture and beauty of the zoo. But above all the staff at the zoo is amazing. From the first phone call with Priscilla to the post-wedding follow up with Crystal we were in good hands. The staff was so friendly and attentive to my guests the evening of the wedding. The food is amazing. We chose a buffet and everything was hot and the lines moved quickly. The bar service was exceptional and we even had a cigar bar outside. Thank you to the staff at the Bronx Zoo for such a wonderful day!

    I had the pleasure of getting married at the Bronx Zoo. What an amazing experience. We feel in love with the zoo from the start. It was our dream venue. Unique, beautiful, romantic and just perfect. Thank you to all the staff at the zoo for everything you did to create the perfect day for us. Our guests continue to compliment the great food and staff. Special thanks to Ceri and Pricilla. They are amazing! I can't say enough about what a great venue this is. Wow your guests and get married at the zoo. We're so happy we did!
