Valentine’s Dinner FAQs

Are there going to be REAL animals at the event? I really want to pet/cuddle with/hug/kiss all of the animals. Can I do any of those things at the party?
Yes, there will be REAL cool creatures at the Valentine’s events. No, you may not pet/cuddle/hug/kiss any of them. They are only to be handled by Fort Worth Zoo animal staff. Keep reading to learn how you’ll be able to (safely) interact with the animals.

What will the animals be doing at the event?
The Zoo’s outreach animals will be mingling with guests at the beginning of the party, as well as posing for photo ops with our photographer. Get your hashtags ready.

What will I be doing at the Valentine’s dinner?
In addition to the meet-and-greet with our animals, you can have your photo taken with your sweetie, as well as enjoy an interactive game. As always, we’ll treat you to delicious food and adult beverages.

My date and I want to sit with our friends at the Valentine's Dinner. Can you arrange for us to be seated together?
Yes, we can. When you purchase your tickets, you will have the opportunity to enter the names of the people with whom you’d like to be seated. Be sure to get tickets early, as historically, our Valentine’s Dinner events sell out every year.

Does everyone have to be 21?
Because there's alcohol, as well as some light-hearted adult content, the Valentine’s Dinners and Galentine’s Party are for guests ages 21 and older, no exceptions. Thank you for your interest – put us on the calendar for in the future!

What is the attire for the Valentine’s Dinner?
Please consider “after-five” attire. For example, this might be a dress, or slacks and a blouse for ladies, and slacks and a button-down or collared shirt for men.

The person I was planning on attending this party with just bailed/I have the flu/I want that high you can only get when canceling plans and you get to stay home in your pajamas and watch Netflix. Can you refund my tickets?
Unfortunately, all ticket sales are final and non-refundable. You may donate your tickets back to the Zoo as a partial charitable contribution.
