Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear to Jungle Party?
This is not a black tie event! The dress is casual, so you can enjoy Seattle’s warm, summer sun! Guests are encouraged to dress in the spirit of each year’s Jungle Party theme. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, too, as the party is mainly held on our grassy meadow and you will be walking zoo grounds.

Should I make reservations?
Yes, reservations are required for Jungle Party, as it often sells out prior to the night of the event. To buy tickets and make reservations, please contact Nicole Bennion, Jungle Party Auction Manager, at 206.548.2421.

Can I bring my child?
We ask that our guests not bring anyone under the age of 21 to Jungle Party. We strongly feel Jungle Party is not appropriate for children.

How can I reserve transportation during the event for a special needs guest?
We have transportation such as wheelchairs, electric carts, and security escort available for any guest that needs special attention. Please contact Nicole Bennion, Jungle Party Auction Manager, at 206.548.2421 to reserve specific transportation in advance.

Who should I notify regarding my food allergies?
We are happy to provide a gourmet meal to those with special food allergies or preferences, including vegetarians, vegans, and those with special allergies and intolerances. Because Jungle Party incorporates a theme with the food and beverage served throughout the evening please be sure to contact Nicole Bennion, Jungle Party Auction Manager, at 206.548.2421 in advance regarding any food allergies.

How can I support Jungle Party if I’m unable to attend?
