Wednesday, January 23: Both Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo will remain closed due to icy conditions on our pathways. Our staff is working hard to clear the paths and ensure a safe visit for guests when we re-open. Thank you for your understanding!

External Caterers

External caterers are welcome. If a vendor other than Zoo caterer Centerplate is used, Centerplate will supervise the caterer’s presence and collect a 15% surcharge of the caterers' invoice for food, beverages and services.

  • A meeting with any external vendors is required at least two weeks prior to your event date to coordinate delivery times, loading areas, set-up locations and pick-up schedule.
  • Zoo New England cannot issue refrigerator or freezer space.
  • Scheduled deliveries must be made the same day as the event only.
  • It’s the responsibility of outside caterers to set-up, break down and perform basic cleaning as deemed appropriate by the Private Functions Manager.
