Festive Food, Craft Beers and Great Fun—Don’t Miss This Year’s SPLASH!

Get your calendar and mark yourself down to attend one of Tulsa’s most popular and entertaining events—the Oklahoma Aquarium’s annual party and fundraising extravaganza, SPLASH!—happening this Saturday, February 26, 2022. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Presented by River Spirit Casino Resort, this year’s SPLASH! brings together more than 30 regionally and nationally acclaimed local brewers to pair tasty craft beers with delicious food offerings from over 20 signature Tulsa restaurants. It’s a food and drink party that you won’t want to miss out on. (Find the full list of breweries and restaurants here. You won’t be disappointed!) 


As you drink and dine to your delight, you’ll also enjoy a variety of can’t-miss entertainment—including a live performance by Inspyral Circus and the Mermaids of Oklahoma, games, prizes, and even a mechanical bull shark (selfies are a must, right?). And of course, it all happens at the Oklahoma Aquarium, amongst our awesome sea-life exhibits. You can also meet the lovely Mermaids of Oklahoma, be sure to get a shell-fie with these sirens of the sea!

Auction 2022

SPLASH! is all about making it possible for the Oklahoma Aquarium to do what we do best—educating and inspiring conservation of our aquatic world through interactive discovery. Of the 400,000 annual visitors to the Aquarium, approximately 100,000 are school-aged children who benefit from the enrichment, learning and joys of our exhibits and events, which your SPLASH! tickets and auction bids support. The Oklahoma Aquarium Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, making your contributions tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

SPLASH! wouldn’t be possible without the support of the community, especially our sponsors this year—our thanks go out to River Spirit Casino Resort, 106.1 The Twister, Equitas Realty Advisors, BAMA,  BancFirst, BKD CPAs and Advisors, Equitas Realty Advisors, First Oklahoma Bank, GSHELMS & Associates, Hardesty Foundation, Holiday Inn Express, The McGraw Family, ONEOK, The Oxley Foundation, PSO, Ross Group, Smith Barkett Law Group, and Techsico.
