About Riverbanks Zoo & Garden

Riverbanks Zoo & Garden, located in Columbia and home to more than 2,000 magnificent animals, is considered one of South Carolina’s most unique venues to host a corporate or social event. By day, our meeting rooms and picnic areas boast such unusual backdrops as elephant enclosures and tropical gardens. By night, the sounds of exotic animals can be heard as guests arrive for their cocktail parties and wedding receptions. Our spaces are versatile in style and appearance, with capacities ranging from 25 guests to 5,000. Catering is provided in-house by an event-specialist caterer and a portion of their proceeds are donated towards animal conservation.

Working with McKenzie Roland at the zoo was the most pleasant and stress free situation. Mr, Roland is outstanding. The catering staff rocked and the food was to die for..
