Zoo Knoxville hosts a variety of events both indoors and outdoors on diverse backdrops across the park. Areas include bamboo forests, rock walls, covered bridges, enchanting pathways, tree houses, waterfalls, and animal enclosures. All event packages include a coordinator to help personalize your event. Our Wedding Coordinators will meet with and guide you through every decision to make planning a breeze. Invite some animal ambassadors to meet your guests while they enjoy cocktails with an African crested porcupine, a scarlet macaw, or even a bat-eared fox!
