Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to rent a petting zoo?

A traveling petting zoo, complete with goats, chickens, rabbits, potbellied pigs, and even an alpaca, can be a thrilling experience for young children at a birthday party or other event. Many petting zoos offer mobile party packages. Renting a petting zoo costs an average of $400-$500 for a two-hour party, depending on the number of animals; in general, traveling petting zoos bring between 10 and 25 animals. The costs vary greatly if you extend the party or add additional activities. For instance, many petting zoo rental farms offer pony rides for an average of $60-$74 per hour, face painting or glitter tattoos for an average of $70-$75 per hour (or $150-$190 per event), or a picture frame craft project for an average of $10 per child. Although farm animals are the standard for a petting zoo, some farms offer alternative animals. For example, a reptile petting zoo may cost an average of $300 per hour. You may also be charged travel and setup fees, depending your distance from the farm and the surface where the petting zoo will be set up. Expect to pay an average of $1.25 per mile for travel for the petting zoo. A hay setup for a petting zoo costs an average of an additional $25 or more.
