Peoria Zoo Event Space

1125 W. Lake Ave. Peoria , IL 61614


The Peoria Zoo offers an extremely versatile space in the Zambezi River Lodge & Village.  The indoor section of the space can seat up to 200 people and can be used for meetings, weddings and other special events.

If you have more than 200 people, don’t worry.  Just outside of the indoor section is what the Peoria Zoo called “The Village”.  This outdoor space can be used separately or in conjunction with the indoor Lodge.  Using both areas, the Peoria Zoo can accommodate over 1,000 guests.  
In addition to larger spaces, the Zoo also offers two smaller areas for rental in the evening.  These classroom-style rooms have great views into exhibits within the Zoo.
