LIVE AND IN PERSON

With the health and safety of our guests and our community top of mind, we are looking forward to bringing back Zoo Ball as an in-person event this year.

The Black and White Ball, presented by Phillips 66, will celebrate an exciting development related to the Galapagos Islands exhibit opening in 2022. Stay tuned for an official announcement this Spring! In the meantime, dust off those tuxedo tails and gala dresses and get ready to celebrate and support the Houston Zoo!
