After a sell-out crowd of 2,000-plus partygoers in 2018, the second annual Splash Bash is bound to be an underwater night to remember.  Mingle with your friends, pose for a picture with the Aquarium's ambassador animals and dance the night away for an unforgettable evening.

Your individual ticket includes live entertainment, premium cocktails and delicious cuisine by local restaurants and chefs. We recommend you purchase individual tickets in advance from Mississippi Aquarium, but limited tickets will be available at the gate on the night of the event.
