Zoo To Do

Zoo To Do, a party with a purpose

Without a doubt, Zoo To Do is one of the best parties of the year – but the cause it supports is even more significant.

The non-profit Dallas Zoo has been one of Dallas’ most beloved attractions for 128 years, and has become one of the best zoological parks in the U.S., featuring the award-winning Giants of the Savanna habitat. Maintaining this type of excellence – and providing great care for more than 2,000 animals – requires support from our community.

Zoo To Do is a major source of funding for the Dallas Zoo, helping us introduce more people to the wonder of the natural world. With the proceeds from the event, the Zoo is able to continue its mission to serve as an outstanding center of education, wildlife conservation, and entertainment. With 106 acres to explore, thousands of animals to visit, and a wide variety of family activities, the Dallas Zoo is one of America’s best – and Zoo To Do is one reason why.

The party is held each fall in the expansive Giants of the Savanna exhibit at the Dallas Zoo. The evening begins with cocktails, a stroll through the Savanna, and the opening of an incredible silent auction. It continues with more than 25 of Dallas’s finest chefs and restaurants providing food at different stations throughout the event.  It’s a true “grazing” event. Music, dancing and other live entertainment creates a magical evening, and late-night dancing under the stars follows a spectacular live auction that features breathtaking vacation getaways, private dinners by some of the best chefs in Dallas, and more.
