In the heart of Assiniboine Park Zoo is Journey to Churchill, and in the heart of Journey to Churchill is the Gateway to the Arctic. Invite your guests to the most unique venue in town where they'll dine under dancing Northern lights in the Aurora Borealis Theatre and mingle in the Sea Ice Passage under the pools that polar bears and seals call home. With the capacity to host up to 250 guests and an awe-inspiring backdrop for your event, this one-of-a-kind venue will meet all your event needs and more.

Gateway to the Arctic Capacity:
Stand-up reception = 250
Dinner in theatre = 88

Invite your guests to the Town of Churchill where they could see polar bears playing while mixing and mingling without ever having to leave the city limits. The Tundra Grill is the final landmark at Assiniboine Park Zoo's world-class Journey to Churchill. Guests will feel as though they have been transplanted onto the tundra as they look through the 150-foot-wide wall of 9-foot-high windows. With a capacity to host up to 140 guests, the Tundra Grill is like no other venue in the city.

Tundra Grill Capacity:
Stand-up reception = 140
