Nylon Zoo inflatables and costumes are a venue onto themselves.

The great artist, Evelyn Roth first created the idea for the Zoo and the inflatables and costumes.

This event is put together and packaged in such a way as to make it easy to load into a car, bring on a plane, as well, it is easy to set up.

Each Nylon Zoo event lasts approximately 25 minutes to a half hour depending on length of festival and the size of the audience.
