Winterfest Event Image

It’s the most wonderful time of the year where Mystic Aquarium sparkles with holiday cheer through the New Year! Join us one day or many and delight in the magic of the season with different activities every day. Check out all that we have planned for you!

  • Watch talented artists as they chop, chisel and chip away at massive chunks of ice to create frozen sculptures then take your own cool photo next to the finished masterpiece.
  • Santa’s on vacation! Get your picture taken with him and write the jolly man a thank you to show him how much you appreciate all the holiday cheer he has spread and say hello to his elves frolic underwater as they interact with all their friends at Winterfest.
  • Meet the Snow Sisters for a sing-a-long and autograph session (and don’t forget your camera for a pretty, pretty picture!).
  • Local musicians perform live, bringing you the sounds of classic hits and some of today’s top favorites.
  • Toast to the New Year while beluga’s swim in the background! Celebrate the start of 2020 with a complimentary cider bubbly toast.

And, get ready to dance, sing and join in the musical fun with LIVE music by area favorites Steve Elci & Friends as they ring in the New Year with their famous “Countdown to Noon” concert!
