ALERT: After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close Georgia Aquarium to public guests. We continue to closely monitor this ever-evolving situation around COVID-19 with the ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, volunteers and animals.

Interns learn about and assist with the execution of special events ranging from social functions (weddings, bar mitzvahs, etc) to corporate parties and non-profit fundraisers. Interns shadow Events Services staff in all aspects of events including pre-planning and preparing the event space, meeting with catering Captains for day of run-through, on-site management of event timeline, managing event volunteers and event completion/closing functions to gain a full understanding of how the department operates.
