Chattanooga Aquarium

Chattanooga Aquarium

Voted one of America’s Premier Aquariums. The Chattanooga Aquarium, situated on the Tennessee River in Downtown Chattanooga, is home to 12,000+  animals and 1,1000,000 gallons of water. When it opened in 1992 it was the largest combination fresh and saltwater aquarium in the world!

The River Journey facility is a 130,000 square foot structure equivalent in height to a twelve-story building. It contains a total of 400,000 US gallons (1,500,000 L), and was the largest freshwater aquarium in the world when it opened. It is organized around the theme of the Story of the River, following the path of a raindrop from high in the Appalachian Mountains to the Gulf of Mexico. Approximately two-thirds of the facility's display follows this theme, with the rest devoted to smaller aquatic exhibits hosting organisms from around the world.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a relaxing night out full of wonderous sights, entertaining fur-n-fin buddies, food and refreshments. Participants will be transported to and from the convention hotel via charter bus. Network in the reception room over heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks, then enjoy the exhibits and experience what it means to be a member of the VPPPA family!

You can order tickets during your conference registration or if needed, you can order below outside of the registration system. If ordered outside of the registration process, they will still be placed into your registration package.
