Fairytale Luncheon with Columbus Children’s Theater in the Zoo’s Africa!

Once upon a time at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, there was a wonderful event for the whole family that was called The Fairytale Luncheon. This luncheon was a wonderful opportunity for guests to enjoy a kid-friendly meal, up-close animal encounters, and watch a special performance of “Sleeping Beauty,” performed by the Columbus Children’s Theatre. The beauty of this Fairytale Luncheon is that you can go! The Fairytale Luncheon will take place in the Zoo’s new Africa Event Center March 21 and 22 from noon to 2 p.m.

With appearances by character ambassadors, face painting and caricature artists, this will be a truly magical moment!

Some Tips:

  • Ticket sales end on Sunday, March 8th  so you must purchase tickets in advance

  • Be one of the first to experience the Zoo’s all-new character dining experience

  • A somewhat pricey event but includes a lot of extras like getting up-close with animals, face painting and a royal coronation ceremony

  • It is still chilly outside in March so dress appropriately for the weather even though a majority of the event will be held indoors
