The Kansas City Zoo

6800 Zoo Drive

Kansas City, MO 64132


We’ll provide ample, free parking and a drop-off area for limousines as well as ride-share services such as Uber or Lyft.


Jazzoo takes place outdoors on the Zoo grounds. Upon entry, we’ll provide you with a beverage tray that doubles as map of food, drink, and entertainment locations.

We call it “creative black tie” — a fun and lively mixture of formal wear and frivolity. No jeans, please!

All guests must be over 21 years of age with a valid photo ID. This event is rain or shine. Tickets are non-refundable.
