Winterfest at Mystic Aquarium | Kids Out and About Fairfield County, CT

Winterfest at Mystic Aquarium

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 from Ocean Blue Catering and Ice Matters 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 then say hello to his elves frolicking underwater as they interact with all their friends at Winterfest.
  • Take a piece of Winterfest home with you! Let your creativity shine as you craft a spectacular snowman masterpiece that will remind you of all the fun you had with us.
  • Meet the Sea Princess and Ice Princess for a sing-a-long and autograph session (and don’t forget your camera for a pretty, pretty picture!).
  • 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 a special “Countdown to Noon” performance.
  • Toast to the New Year while beluga’s swim in the background! Celebrate the start of 2019 with a complimentary cider bubbly toast.

Plus, visit us on Saturday or Sunday to meet the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph, and his furry friend Bumble as they visit the Aquarium! And be sure to get your ticket to watch the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4-D, with friends and family all December!
