Event at the Zoo – Conservation Pavilion

In June, the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) unveiled their new event venue to local event managers & planners. Located at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute, The Conservation Pavilion is a modern space mixing farm & industrial design.

La Prima Food Group was honored to share menu items from both its divisions – La Prima Catering and Catering by Seasons. Stations offered a variety from seared tuna, matchless mac & cheese with two sauce toppings; create your own ramen cups with shrimp or beef, champagne shots with raspberry, a sweet potato & mango salad, our award-winning corn avocado salsa, a client favorite pappardelle pasta salad, a variety of sandwiches and refreshing white sangria and watermelon infused water. It was a sampling of longtime favorites with a dash of the new and trendy.

The Conservation Pavilion is the perfect corporate event space. It’s bright and wide open in the midst of one of the oldest zoos in the United States. If you are interested in holding your company event at this unique venue, contact Stephanie White at FONZ, 202.633.3677.
