Private Events

Extraordinary Experiences

The Aquarium’s large private event venue spaces host a wide range of events, from large company celebrations and client appreciations to smaller team trainings and meetings. With an event venue that features a 300,000-gallon shark habitat, there is no other place in Utah where sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, and colorful reef fish serve as the backdrop to your special event.

Rio Tinto Kennecott Plaza offers curious guests an outdoor setting for exploring connections between ecosystems and discovering how choices impact our environment. The varying habitats of The Plaza will double as unique celebration venues, creating options from intimate dinners to 7,000-person concerts. The center of Rio Tinto Kennecott Plaza is the permanent installation of Utah’s newest landmark, Ecosystem Exploration Craft and Observatory (EECO). This recycled structure from U2’s 360° World Tour creates a distinct vista for any type of gathering.
