I DO at the ZOO
Santa Barbara Zoo
Dreaming of exotic gardens, beautiful animals and sunset ocean views? Look no further than the Santa Barbara Zoo in California. This venue accommodates evening or daytime weddings and receptions. They have an onsite catering service, Zoo Catering Services by Rincon. The Santa Barbara Zoo is a private, non profit organization that helps support conservation efforts and education programs. The revenues received from private events enable such efforts and programs and assist in the development and operation of the Zoo.
Nature at its Best
You may desire a formal wedding in the lush gardens with the gorgeous view of the ocean behind you. Or you may just want a small, casual reception with some extra time for your guests to meet our animals for the day. The Zoo is open for private weddings from 5-10pm year round.
Another way to add a special memory for your day is to reserve the train that will run exclusively for you and your guests.
More than 500 animals live at this zoo! The zoo is home to 146 species of mammals, reptiles, insects and birds.
Other attractions include an Art Exhibit, giraffe feeding and live stage shows that all could be added to your special day.
