The Toledo Zoo is seeking creative artists and skilled makers to take part in our uniquely wild, two-day art fair that takes place throughout Zoo grounds. This event features local and regional artists with various mediums on display and for sale for thousands of Zoo visitors. It also includes live entertainment, hands-on art activities and of course, animals! Work does not have to be animal related.


The Toledo Zoo has been around for more than a hundred years and is home to more than 10,000 individual animals representing over 720 species. In an effort to save endangered wildlife we participate in more than 80 Species Survival Plans that ensure healthy, genetically diverse Zoo populations. Travel around the world from the tropics to Greenland, ocean to sky and desert to rainforest in one Zoo visit. Our animals take part in the art fair by creating their own works of art, which is a huge attendance driver for the event.
