Why the Calgary Zoo Is the Ultimate Backdrop For Your Event

Whether you are planning a customer appreciation event, a product launch or a corporate meeting or team-building session, the Calgary Zoo is a unique venue that promises a memorable event.

Looking for an event venue that’s unlike any other? The Calgary Zoo is a natural choice.

An event at the Calgary Zoo is a unique opportunity to explore the grounds, get to know your colleagues and friends, and participate in conservation-themed games. Plus, hosting your corporate event here has meaning beyond the bottom line — it helps support the zoo’s conservation efforts and brings awareness to the animals we share the earth with, especially those that are endangered.

With flexible booking policies and creative strategies to allow for physical distancing, the Calgary Zoo has welcomed numerous Calgary-based organizations and their employees for a fun and safe event.

Here are a few reasons why the Calgary Zoo could be the perfect venue for your upcoming event.

Fun Corporate Team-Building Events

The Calgary Zoo offers one-of-a-kind team-building events where you can explore the grounds and participate in conservation-themed games with colleagues. The fun, safe events include scavenger hunts and “Escape Extinction,” as well as reality television show-inspired games like Zoomazing Race and Zoovivor.

Also, the Calgary Zoo launched a new game opportunity this year. The Locked Zoo is a customizable escape challenge and team-building event for adults.

Ample Meeting and Banquet Facilities

With its dedicated meeting and banquet spaces, the Calgary Zoo is ready to help you create and execute the perfect event. Regardless of the type of event your business is planning, the Calgary Zoo ensures all events are customer driven and supported with excellent service.

It’s also easy for event attendees to access these facilities. There is plenty of parking, LRT access and the Calgary Zoo is only a short distance from the downtown core.

Distinctive Settings for Outdoor Events and Corporate Barbecues

The Eurasian Gateway Tent at the Calgary Zoo works as both an indoor and outdoor venue for company events. In fact, it’s a top spot for corporate barbecues and picnics. Between May and September, invite your best clients for some safe, physically distanced fun or throw a company barbecue to reward your staff.

Sustainable Catering and Tasty Dishes

The Calgary Zoo’s culinary team fosters a farm-to-table mentality, growing everything from kale and Swiss chard to herbs — even its own cardamom. This team strives to grow as much of its own produce as possible and buys from local suppliers to supplement what they grow. The zoo also supports programs like Ocean Wise and only sources sustainable seafood. Whether you are looking for an elegant reception or intimate get-together, the zoo’s culinary team has a variety of interesting and unique catering options.
