Say "I Do at the Zoo!"

The Bronx Zoo offers the ultimate “one of a kind” experience for you and your guests and has the perfect mix of elegance and fun, with two locations in the park to choose from. The Schiff Family Great Hall accommodates up to 200 guests and Congo Gorilla Forest accommodates up to 80 guests.

The Historic Astor Court located adjacent to our Beaux-Arts Zoo Center, reflects a one-of-a-kind old world grace. Wedding parties may choose to have their ceremony outside among the free roaming Indian Peacocks or inside our celebrated Zoo Center. Sip cocktails in our Madagascar exhibit alongside Lemurs, Nile Crocodiles and other curious creatures or mingle with your guests outside with our California Sea Lions, followed by fine dining in the Schiff Family Great Hall. This spacious hall, reflective of timeless architecture, was fully renovated and is New York’s first green and LEED certified historic landmark building.

Experience an amazing cocktail hour and reception in our Congo Gorilla Forest; home to two troops of Lowland Gorillas, DeBrazza's Monkeys, Okapis, Mandrills and Red River Hogs. This exotic locale provides a perfect setting for your intimate affair.

Make your green go further! All event proceeds help support Wildlife Conservation Society’s mission to help save wildlife and wild places around the globe.
