Each year, hundreds of community members join together to support Great Explorations Children’s Museum’s mission through a gala, our Great Extravaganza! This year's mystical, fun-filled event, “Enchanted Extravaganza, A Knight for the Museum,” will take our guests back in time for an immersive renaissance-themed evening fit for royalty, with a magical twist! Guests will delight in a decadent plated sit-down dinner, drinks, auctions, and live entertainment.
This event will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 7:00pm to 11:00pm at The Coliseum in St. Petersburg both in-person and online. The funds raised during this gala will support our mission – rich creative play programming run at the museum, in surrounding neighborhoods, and in Title 1 elementary schools in Pinellas County. We hope you will join us as we celebrate our history of successes while working with the children and families of our community.

~Renaissance-style attire is encouraged, but not required~

Thank You to all our Event Sponsors
