Not just a great tourist site for visitors (see featured video for a how-to guide for out-of-towners), the Oregon Zoo also boasts a large ballroom, the Cascade Crest Ballroom, that is perfect for weddings and can accommodate banquets of up to 450 guests and even more in a reception style.

Located just west of downtown, The Oregon Zoo has lots of amenities that make it great for a big wedding event: easy access from Highway 26 and the Washington Park MAX station, ample public parking, tables and chairs included, complete catering and bartending packages available, and even complimentary wi-fi so guests can Instagram the wedding all night long. At the end of the night, your guests can hop back on the MAX to rest easily at their convenient downtown hotels.

The best part, your wedding and event fee goes to support the mission of the Zoo of bringing greater awareness to zoo initiatives and activites such as wildlife preservation and conservation, and species recovery.
