Animal Quest Shows

Birthday Parties, Schools, Daycares, Preschools, Senior Homes, Libraries, Park Districts, Scouts, Nature Centers, Trade Shows, Private Events, Fundraisers, Picnics, Festivals, Block Parties, Camps, Fairs, and more! You name it, and we will bring animals there!

Does your child’s face light up at the mere notion of visiting the zoo or glue themselves to the TV to watch nature specials? Do you need to teach a classroom full of kids a life science lesson and want it to really sink in? Is your event or fundraiser missing a certain spark or uniqueness? Or, perhaps you’d just like to spiff up your party with some unique and exotic creatures?

Hi. Welcome to Animal Quest.

We love to see the smiles on your faces, child and adult alike, at the majesty of the animal kingdom during the show. We are experienced in delivering fun, exciting, and informative animal presentations for the entire age spectrum. We do interactive and exciting shows, or, if you like, our animal trainers can simply walk around your party or event with animals and do more personal, miniature “trainer talk” presentations as they walk amongst your guests with live animals, offering casual presentations on the animals and answering your guests’ questions. For all educators out there, our classroom-friendly presentations are easily adapted to your lesson plan for compliance with the ISBE — just let us know where you’re at, and we’ve got your back.

We are very hands on and our animals are used to being handled – therefore we encourage you to get up close and touch our animals!

After the show, guests will have the opportunity to pose with an animal and have their picture taken! *This is included in some birthday party packages and can be an add-on for other types of shows if requested.

We now have free printable coloring pages of the cartoon versions of some of our animals! Please feel free to print as many as you’d like. All can be seen on our Freebies & Printables page here
