"Perfect Dance Location ", An Eventective User from
I just held my sororities dance at the Kansas City Zoo. The room we used was the perfect space and size for our dance. I really enjoyed the space because the DJ and caterers had separate spaces that did not take away from the dance floor. Our dance had about 100 people, and we still had 8 cocktail tables and 3 large round tables. The zoo worked wonderfully with us every step of the way too! All of the girls in my sorority have been raving about the location since the day of the dance! I definitely recommend the Kansas City Zoo for your next event!

"Fun and different", An Eventective User from Kansas City, MO
I attended a summer wedding at the zoo and it was so much fun! The bride and groom had an animal theme which fit perfectly with the surroundings. They even had zoo keepers walk around with animals like birds and snakes for people to see and pet. It was so unique and interesting. Perfect for someone who doesn't want the typical wedding.
