October 1-31, 2022
Things get wonderfully weird around the Tennessee Aquarium during ODDtober – a month-long celebration of strange creatures from around the world and in our own backyard. Learn odd facts about animals throughout both Aquarium buildings and look for fun fall touches inside our exhibits. See pumpkins flicker with an eerie glow, flashing along with the pulses of an Electric Eel. Find out why some “scary” species are not-so-creepy after all. At the end of your tour, grab a free sticker in the gift shop when you mention “ODDtober” (while supplies last).
Come in costume and celebrate a family-friendly night of spooky critters and yummy treats on Friday, October 28 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm ET. Make friends with mermaids, lounge with lemurs, and beware of pirates as you trick-or-treat at candy stations throughout both buildings. Don’t miss an unforgettable photo op with some of your favorite characters as they SCUBA dive with hundreds of fish. Stop by the dance party and show off your best moves.
Member tickets: $8 each
Non-members tickets: $35 each
