Big Joel's Safari Petting Zoo & Educational Park
Rent the Zoo
Looking for a place to host your next business function, customer appreciation event, or party?
Why not rent the zoo!
Our Zoo rental package is for two hours after the park closes to the public. Events can begin after the park closes or ½ hour after during most of our regular season (April – early October). Please note that early and later times of the year may not be possible due the sunsetting early.
With our basic zoo rental, you and your guests receive private access to the park and can tour at your leisure during daylight hours (Parts of the park cannot be toured due to insurance purposes after sunset). You get access to the Safari Party Room which is climate controlled and to the Pavilion area with lights & electrical hookups. Both are conveniently located next to each other. Feed for the animals and other extra attractions are not included in the basic price. You can customize your venue rental, for example to provide feed for guests, add more time to your event, and more.
Food and drinks can be brought into the park for your event. All food must stay in the party room and outdoor pavilion area. Please make prior arrangements if you wish to bring alcoholic beverages. We cannot provide grilling equipment for events due to insurance reasons.
Balloons are prohibited outside of the party room and any noise making (party) devices.
