Host Your Event
The Florida Aquarium has perfectly unique event spaces in Tampa that will make your party a night to remember!
Located in the Channel District in downtown, The Florida Aquarium features 200,000 square feet of air conditioned space to enjoy with friends and associates. Our venue features spectacular and serene sights featuring animals and plants native to Florida and beyond.
In addition, our facility also has two large lobbies perfect for dancing. Private event locations within the exhibits can be used creatively—a jazz lounge with a 500,000 gallon coral reef habitat as a backdrop or a cocktail party in our lush, temperature-controlled Wetlands dome with free flying birds and one of the world’s largest indoor mangrove tunnels. The modern architecture and layout of our private event locations allow for flexibility and creativity for themed events that add a special individual touch to your event.
All event rentals include a facility fee and a food and beverage minimum. The Florida Aquarium Sales & Events Team can create a customized proposal for your event based on your selections.
