Bicentennial Pavilion

​​​Available to book private events for June 10-Sept. 24

This brand new structure is the new home for a variety of Zoo activities, including private events, a new bird presentation area and a concessions area. Conveniently located near the Zoo's Entry Plaza, with restrooms and the gift shop nearby, the Bicentennial Pavilion is an ideal place to host after-hour events.

Designed with beautiful, natural materials and featuring lush trees and plants throughout, this open-air space provides an indoor-outdoor experience that's perfect from spring through fall.

The north side of the Bicentennial Pavilion is home to the all-new bird presentation, Magnificent Macaws presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers. The south end hosts a variety of public events and activities, such as the Zoo's summer concert series, as well as private events. The versatile space can easily be converted from one large area that's great for big receptions into two smaller, separate spaces that simultaneously accommodate multiple private events like company picnics and parties.


  • Two areas for events for up to 400 guests per area

  • Can be converted for one large event area for up to 800 guests

  • Can accommodate larger groups on a flow basis
