Como Friends ZooBoo at Como Zoo

Reinventing a family classic

Watch for our new event in 2019

2017 was a special milestone year for ZooBoo.  Not only is it the 30th Anniversary of the event but it is also was the final year of ZooBoo in its current design.  Thanks to the incredible support from our attendees, volunteers, donors, partnering organizations, and the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory staff, this family tradition has been a wonderful fundraiser for Como Friends and Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.

Due to significant construction of a new Seals and Sea Lion habitat in the heart of the campus – and a need to refresh ZooBoo, it will come to a close this year and we will launch something new in 2019.

Thank you Como Friends ZooBoo 2017 Sponsors!
