Night Dive

Get your glitter and air guitar ready because Night Dive is back and we’re all about glam rock, baby.

Night Dive is an adults-only event with local bands rockin’ out right next to the fish, DJs spinning in the Aquarium’s galleries, inspiring works of art, cocktails and drinks, and tasty bites from food trucks. Turn up and take it all in!
