Join Blank Park Zoo in celebrating this year’s many accomplishments, while raising critical funds, for the mission of Iowa’s only accredited Zoo.

Following last year’s incredible successes with our first-ever virtual gala, this year’s Zoobilation promises a celebration on a whole new level, with elevated Zoo experiences and a variety of options to accommodate every supporter and wildlife enthusiast near and far.

Alongside our in-person celebration, Zoobilation will host a PUBLIC, online silent auction, free to all looking to support the Zoo. Zoobilation is also thrilled to take over the Zoo’s social media accounts the week of July 5 – 11, featuring a complete, in-depth look at YOUR Zoo.

*Open seating (non-reserved) is on a first-come, first-served basis and ideal for attendees looking to choose a location that best suits their preferences. All tables will be inside the newly completed, air-conditioned Holmes Foster Event Center.

As we continue to rebound from the deficit following Blank Park Zoo’s temporary closure in 2020, your financial support continues to have vital significance to sustaining our work and continued strides for our mission to inspire an appreciation of the natural world through conservation, education, research and recreation.
