For a more unconventional and relaxed event, our Cajun Ballroom nestled at the heart of the Louisiana swamp exhibit offers a rootsy but elegant dance hall. The Louisiana Swamp Exhibit at Audubon Zoo transports you down the bayou and introduces you to the creatures and rich history of this region. Invite your guests to a Cajun fais do-do, crawfish boil, or other Southern-themed party at the Cajun Ballroom. This venue is perfect for rehearsal dinners, weddings, and receptions, and offers free parking.

We have special summer rates for July and August 2020. Inquire below.
