Host your next special event at The Venues of Lincoln Park Zoo. Where else can you enjoy an exotic reception with giraffes, gazelles and ostriches browsing a gorgeous African savanna? Your guests can sip cocktails while getting nose to nose with nature.

With spectacular—and flexible—indoor and outdoor spaces, the zoo can accommodate any event ranging from 10 to 10,000 people, from elaborate formal dinners, weddings and receptions to an out-of-the-ordinary cocktail party.
