There are five round tables in each of the pavilions with bench style seating and two rectangular tables available for your food and gifts. We’ll place the table covers on the tables for you at the beginning of the party, and we’ll take out the trash at the end.
The maximum capacity in each pavilion is 55 guests. No balloons, straws, glitter, confetti, or piñatas are allowed inside Zoo grounds.
If you want to “WOW” your guests you can add on any of the following options to your party:
This year, consider asking your child’s friends to skip the birthday presents and donate to the Houston Zoo instead! It’s a WILD way to celebrate your little one’s special day, while also helping to support the continued care and feeding of the Zoo’s 6,000 animal residents!
Create Your Own Birthday Fundraiser
Plan ahead and arrive early to avoid parking issues. Ride together so that the driver can pull up to our Medical Center Gate Entrance on Cambridge Street and you can unload your belongings and head straight over to the pavilion. We also encourage you to bring your own wagons and rolling coolers in case we are sold out of our wagons on a busy day.
