The Audubon Zoo Picnic Pavilion is the perfect venue for your next outdoor event. Conveniently located in Audubon Zoo, the space offers covered seating, a sand volleyball court, a large grassy lawn, and of course, nearby zoo attractions.

The Louisiana Swamp Exhibit, seated within Audubon Zoo, has received national acclaim for the innovative portrayal of Louisiana culture. It has been one of the most popular attractions in the history of the Zoo as it explores the relationships between the Cajun people, plants and animals of the swamp, in food, industry and daily life. This unique venue offers an amazing setting for social, weddings and corporate events in the Cajun Ballroom.
