Zoo Events

& Calendar

Come see what’s happening at the zoo!


A “Roaring” Good Time

Events at the zoo are a blast! They’re also a great opportunity to educate the public about our animals and our conservation efforts, as well as, to raise funds to support our admission-free zoo. From Zoo Run Run to ZOOvies to Zoo Lights (or Brew Lights for our 21+ zoo fans), there’s an event for kids and adults of all ages at Henry Vilas Zoo! We also offer a great selection of rental spaces for gatherings of any size. Host your next birthday party or corporate event at the zoo, and enjoy exclusive access to our zoo grounds!
