The Peoria Zoo Peoria, Illinois

The Peoria Zoo can host your indoor or outdoor functions. We have a large banquet hall with a fireplace, heated floors and vaulted ceiling. Adjacent to the reception hall is an outdoor plaza with a gazebo and a great view of our African animals. In addition, we offer a smaller room on top of the giraffe feeding deck or you can rent the deck for a larger group event.. If your event requires more space, we host events that make use of the entire zoo.
