Birthday Parties

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Who doesn't love celebrating their birthday? There is nothing more exciting than celebrating someone's special day. Why not celebrate at the Montgomery Zoo with hundreds of your animal friends?  The Montgomery Zoo's Education Department is offering birthday party packages on Saturday and Sundays. Bring your friends and presents, and we will provide the rest. 

Montgomery Zoo birthday party packages are only available on Saturday and Sundays.
     Party reservation times are:
          -- 10am - 12pm (noon) or
          -- 2pm - 4pm only

Party arrival time at Education Pavilion is no earlier than 30 minutes prior to your scheduled party time. You are free to visit the Zoo/Museum prior to your party; however, our staff needs set up time prior to your party's arrival. If you are hosting an afternoon party (2pm-4pm), we suggest you visit the Zoo and Museum prior to your party, so you and your guests have plenty of time to see all the Zoo animals, Museum, and attractions before attending the birthday celebration. 

All party packages include set-up and clean up. Zoo staff will remove all trash, decorations, and debris from the area; as well as, aid guests in taking birthday presents to their vehicle. Guests are allowed to bring additional decorations; however, we do ask that guests refrain from bring any type balloon, plastic lids, and/or plastic straws, glass container, alcoholic beverages, and cooking devices. This is for the safety and well-being of our animals. The three packages available are:
