We’ll provide ample, free parking and a drop-off area for limousines as well as ride-share services such as Uber or Lyft.


Jazzoo takes place outdoors on the Zoo grounds. Upon entry, we’ll provide you with a beverage tray that doubles as map of food, drink, and entertainment locations. Due to the timing and nature of the event, most of the Zoo's animals will not be viewable.

We call it “creative black tie” — a fun and lively mixture of formal wear and frivolity. No jeans, please!
