A wedding at the Calgary Zoo can have more meaning than you can even imagine. Celebrating your special day at the zoo also helps to support our conservation efforts and bring awareness to the animals we share the earth with, especially those that are endangered.
The Calgary Zoo provides the perfect mix of elegance and fun for you and your wedding guests. Enjoy an unforgettable event with our one-of-a-kind venues and delicious locally sourced cuisine. Exploring St. George’s Island, your guests will be treated to unique encounters as the zoo is home to almost 900 animals, and 130 different species. Rain or shine couples can expect exquisite photos in our lush Dorothy Harvie Gardens. Your special day will also have a lasting impact, as proceeds will support conservation activities here at the zoo and around the world.
