Sponsor an event

Highly visible presenting and title sponsorships are available for the zoo's beloved community events. Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts—the longest-running outdoor series in the U.S.—provides wide marketing exposure and prominent recognition on zoo grounds April through September. 

A holiday tradition, ZooLights attracts approximately 100,000 visitors a year. This magical evening event provides a number of opportunities to reach zoo audiences. Rabbit Romp, Howloween and Twilight Tuesdays provide unique ways to directly engage with the community.

Sponsor a program

Zoo education programs foster lifelong connections with wildlife and the natural world. Presenting sponsorships are available.

ZooTeens gain hands-on experience at the zoo by caring for animals and working as assistant instructors in the camps program. Zoo Animal Presenters are teens who teach and serve in the community, giving animal presentations, doing outdoor fieldwork and teaching in the Urban Nature Overnights program.

Other programs—including zoo day camps, field trips and Wildlife Live — offer one-of-a-kind educational opportunities and up-close encounters with wildlife.

Sponsor a community day

Community access days are an excellent way to connect with zoo visitors. Active members of the military, their families and veterans receive free admission on Veterans Day, Labor Day and Memorial Day. At least once yearly, the zoo offers free admission to the community.

Become a signature partner

Make a high-level investment in the zoo and your organization's brand and receive above-and-beyond benefits. Signature partners receive year-round recognition on zoo grounds and on the zoo's website. Specialized activation opportunities are available to expand your reach.
