Black and White New Year’s Celebration

You’re invited to ring in the New Year at downtown Atlanta’s most exciting New Year’s Eve party: Georgia Aquarium’s Black and White New Year’s Celebration! You can feel good about attending, because this special event is a fundraiser for our vital research and conservation programs. Join us as we toast to 2019 amongst whale sharks, sea otters, jellies, hundreds of fish and of course, our black and white tuxedoed hosts, the endangered African penguins! Suggested dress is black and white cocktail attire.
