When you are looking for a venue, you might not think of lions, tigers, and bears. In fact, you probably hope that none of those show up at your event. Our October vendor of the month might come as a surprise. That’s because it’s the Birmingham Zoo! The Birmingham Zoo is an excellent place to host your next event. Unique is probably the best way to describe the zoo. It’s the perfect space if you are looking to do something different and stray from a traditional style.
Options are key when planning an event and the Birmingham Zoo has several different spaces available. They offer the Zoo Lodge, a rustic space that can accommodate 50-85 guests, the Trails of Africa, which overlooks the Trails of Africa exhibit and can accommodate up to 500 guests, the Children’s Zoo which offers a café, carousel, and children’s barn and can accommodate up to 1,000 guests, and last but certainly not least the brand new Henley Park Event Lawn, a 32,000 square foot natural space that can accommodate up to 2,500 guests. No matter your event size the Zoo can accommodate a wide range of events. It’s the perfect venue for a small quaint wedding ceremony and also perfect for a fundraiser in the park.
We have had the opportunity to provide our DJ and Photo Booth services to many events at the Birmingham Zoo and we always have a fabulous time! One of our favorite amenities that the Zoo offers that you won’t find at any other venue are the “Animal Extras”. You can request that they bring various animals out during your event, how cool is that?
