A Night At The Aquarium Event

The Newport Chamber of Commerce is busy preparing for the comeback of the popular Banquet and Balloon Auction to be held at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, June 9, 2024.  This annual fundraising event was very well received in the community before the 2020 pandemic made large events prohibitive. Proceeds from the auction will enable the Newport Chamber to continue a 75-year tradition of providing community and business advocacy. The public along with our members are welcome & encouraged to participate.


Festivities for the evening include dinner, entertainment, a silent and oral auction and costume contest. This year’s theme is “Night at the Aquarium”, based on the 2006 comedy movie “Night at the Museum” starring Ben Stiller and Dick Van Dyck as the Night Watchmen.  Aquarium related costumes are encouraged with prizes given to the best male and female costume.


Ticket prices are $75.00 per person. Reserved tables are also available for $750.00.  Reserved tables include tickets for eight people plus special recognition for your business or organization. Included with your ticket is Appetizers, Dinner, and Dessert. The evening will begin in the Passages of the Deep shark tunnel with appetizers, silent auction and a no host bar. We will then move to the lobby for our buffet dinner, more silent auction and a live auction. The Aquarium will have their exhibits open for us to enjoy throughout the evening.


Donations from merchants are being requested for the silent and live auction. This year’s deadline for receiving donations is June 3. Donations forms are available by contacting the Newport Chamber. If you are interested in purchasing tickets, reserving a table or donating auction items, please call the Newport Chamber at 541-265-8801 or email info@newportchamber.org.
