The penguins at the Shedd Aquarium are ready to party in their finest formal wear– their classic tuxedoes of course! The after-hours soiree is appropriately dubbed The Great Penguin Party. The Roaring 20s-themed party will take place this Friday, May 13. Doors open at 6:30 PM and end at 11 PM. That’s hours spent listening to live music, seeing incredible aquatic animals, and dressing up with your friends for an unforgettable night!
The Alan Gresik Swing Orchestra of the Green Mill will be performing an endless array of jazzy music while you dance the night away, enjoy hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar with beer and wine selections. Though cash is required for cocktails. The full aquarium is open for perusing as well, except for the Amazon Rising exhibit. The Wild Reef will also close at 8:45 PM for animal care purposes. There will be a special Animal Spotlight with exclusive themed merchandise available for purchase.
VIP tickets grant attendees access to the VIP lounge, exclusive bar access, and a signature cocktail– included in the open bar package! General admission tickets run for $100 while the VIP package is $175.
