Zoo Rendezvous

Friday, September 25 at 5 p.m. (pre-show starts at 4:30 p.m.)

Join us and toast to the future at this year’s virtual Zoo Rendezvous, because you are the heart of your Oregon Zoo!

This fabulous evening includes an inspirational livestream program that celebrates the dedicated daily care of over 2,500 animals at your zoo and a fun sprint toward the finish line for the Oregon Zoo Foundation’s $8.5 million Heart of the Oregon Zoo campaign.

With this – the foundation’s largest campaign to date – we’re within sight of an exciting goal to fund important enhancements and additions to three new animal habitats—Polar Passage, Primate Forest and Rhino Habitat, as well as and key Oregon Zoo innovations in animal care, education, conservation.

Join us and experience a virtual tour of the world-class and soon-to-be-completed Polar Passage habitat and your zoo’s inspiring global role in conservation science.

The fun, fast-paced evening includes special updates on your favorite animals, a raffle and an exciting online auction (online auction items will be announced soon)! Bid on exclusive zoo experiences from the comfort of home and learn about how your support is building a new zoo, a place where friends and families gather to learn about the natural world and create lifelong memories.

The pre-show starts at 4:30 pm, where you can claim a virtual swag bag, a gift to you from our community partners. Dress in black-tie or PJs, and raise a glass in support of your zoo from the comfort of your home!
