SPARK AFTER DARK
At the Meredith Learning Lab
Spark After Dark will be an evening of wonder, learning, and play to celebrate Thinkery’s impact in our community and raise critical funds to ensure ALL children and families can access our inspirational, play-based learning programs through the Open Door Initiative.
Spark After Dark will offer a unique, after-hours museum experience where guests will enjoy live, interactive art and science demonstrations, maker activities, mocktails & cocktails inspired by local spirit artisans and companies, and delicious bites from a variety of Austin eateries. There will also be a variety of opportunities to support the Open Door Initiative through donations and the purchase of tickets for our Grand Prize raffle.
The evening will be vibrant – guests will have the chance to learn more about our programs while also engaging in some play-based fun of their own and enjoying tasty nibbles and sips. Play. Learn. Give. It’s the perfect recipe for a night of fun and impact!
Tuesday, October 18
7 pm— 10 pm
Doors open at 6 pm

We’re excited about these far-out favors from these Austin eateries at Spark After Dark. In choosing food and beverage partners this year, we consciously highlighted local BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and woman-owned businesses. These partners represent the culinary diversity and community-minded outlook that we love so much about Austin.
