Experience Auction

Priceless opportunities available only at the Garden Party! A full listing of auction items will be on display at the event, but here's a sneak peek at some of the available experiences:

  • Preparing breakfast for the tigers, hiding it in the enclosure for their enjoyment, and then retreating a safe distance to enjoy your own champagne breakfast for eight.
  • Making a dream come true for a child who loves nature, animals, art and adventure by sending a kid to camp at Assiniboine Park.
  • Getting up-close and personal with the red pandas preparing food and hand-feeding them.
  • Team-building with colleagues or bonding with friends and family as you spend a morning or afternoon for four people as zookeepers. Fulfill your childhood dreams by exploring your love of wild animals and spending time behind-the-scenes.
