Community Sponsor (Unlimited): $500 – $3,000

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience this magical event to get them into the Holiday spirit. Unfortunately not everyone in our community is able to afford any extras outside of their necessities for their families. With the help of generous sponsors, we can help bring these families to the zoo to experience the wonder of our winter city and enjoy the season. Our goal is to share these tickets with other non-profit organizations, as well as with schools who are comprised of predominantly lower-income families. The following packages are available for sponsorship:

       • 50 tickets for $500 ($747 Value)
       • 100 tickets for $850 ($1,495 Value)
       • 200 tickets for $1,650 ($2,990 Value)
       • 375 tickets for $3,000 ($5,606 Value)

Your generosity will provide you with the following:

• Recognition of sponsorship on-site, on our website, and all event correspondence
• Your company name on the letter that accompanies the donated tickets to the recipient
• Includes 10 complimentary tickets to Zoominescence




We recognize that many organizations are not able to hold staff or client holiday parties this year. We have extended our community sponsor pricing to companies that wish to buy a block of tickets for an allotted time slot for their staff or clients. In addition to the same pricing – you can choose to host all of your guests exclusively on any Wednesday or Thursday evening; and have the Zoo to yourself. There is also an option to pre-purchase tickets for any Friday, Saturday or Sunday slots of up to 100 people per half hour but unfortunately those will be at full price, and public will be able to attend during the pre and post time slots.

       • 50 tickets for $500 ($747 Value)
       • 100 tickets for $850 ($1,495 Value)
       • 200 tickets for $1,650 ($2,990 Value)
       • 375 tickets for $3,000 ($5,606 Value)



In Kind Sponsorships Available

It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children’s future and the planet!
