Corporate Events
Let us help you plan your next corporate event. The Aquarium is the perfect place to kick up your fins or flutter about. Whether it’s a holiday buffet for 200 or more at River Journey, or heavy hors d’oeuvres at Ocean Journey, the Riverfront is the scenic scene where you want to be! Give your guests a front-row seat with baby stingrays, colorful butterflies, mammoth sharks and catfish and you’ll be the talk of the town.

Simply contact Meredith Lewallen and she will get your event started in the right direction.
