Join us for events to celebrate our oceans!

Every year we plan free, public festivals here on Central Wharf overlooking Boston Harbor. It’s a way to connect people to our oceans, learn about some of their most majestic inhabitants, and have a little fun, too!

These activities are free and open to the public. Aquarium admission is not included.

Are you looking to engage families with your educational activity? Do you want visitors to know about the work you do to protect our oceans?

Join us! We are welcoming like-minded organizations to celebrate oceans with us. If your organization offers opportunities for individuals, families, or groups to engage in our shared environmental mission, we would like you to be part of our day!

Each organization is asked to provide a hands-on activity to help engage families in the group’s mission. But never fear, you do not need to have programming planned. Educators at the New England Aquarium can work with you on how to present your work in a family-friendly way.

If you wish to participate, please contact Ashley Malloy at
