38th Annual Virtual Zoobilation Ball Live Stream 

Watch the live stream replay of the 38th Annual Virtual Zoobilation Ball!

Hey All You Flappers and Fellas, Our Animals Need You! 

Faced with the challenge to reimagine a 38-year tradition, the Zoobilation Ball has pivoted to create a safe experience for our long-time supporters, while also making our spirit, our mission, and our tenacity available to all. Please join San Antonio Zoo for our first ever VIRTUAL gala.

ABOUT

Each year the Zoobilation Ball is THE primary fundraiser for the zoo’s $25 million operating budget, and YOUR support is more critical now than it has been in our entire 106-year history. 

The Zoo’s decrease in daily visitors and our extended closure has created a multimillion-dollar financial loss. Still, the animals rely on us daily and will continue to be cared for at the highest level. Your support of the 38th Annual Zoobilation Ball helps our zoo continue to fulfill our commitment of securing a future for wildlife.
