Party at the Piers: Pier Imagination

NEW DATE: Friday, June 26, 2020 • 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green Street)

In light of recent advisories issued by the San Francisco Mayor’s Office and the California Department of Public Health related to slowing the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone Party at the Piers (previously scheduled for Friday, May 1) to Friday, June 26, 2020. In the event that public gatherings are not permitted in June, we will instead produce a special virtual experience highlighting the Exploratorium’s mission and the impact that can be enjoyed remotely.

As you can imagine, closure of the museum has created an economic challenge for the Exploratorium, as it has for so many. Your support is needed now more than ever before.

We are aggressively ramping up an effort to share our valuable learning experiences online during this time. Table and ticket purchases for Party at the Piers help support both this online work and the Exploratorium’s broader mission to transform learning worldwide. In the event that Party at the Piers moves to a digital experience, your generous support will be considered an unrestricted contribution to the Exploratorium unless you request otherwise.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Akemi Yamaguchi at gala@exploratorium.edu or 415.528.4402.

We greatly appreciate your generous support of the Exploratorium during this unique and uncertain time. And we invite you to visit our main website, now repurposed for online learning, including our new Learning Toolbox. We encourage you to share our website with friends and family around the world, particularly those at home with kids looking for fun educational activities. Or use it to rediscover your own inner curiosity!

 

On June 26, take a giant leap of pure imagination with us at the most exhilarating party of the year! Celebrate and support the Exploratorium’s commitment to curiosity as you dine in a fantastical setting and enjoy thrilling performances and scientific demonstrations. Your generous support of this extraordinary evening will enable the Exploratorium to create joyful learning that empowers people to think big, go deep, and understand their world.

6:00 p.m. Reception / 7:00 p.m. Dinner / 8:00 p.m. Afterglow
