2023 Bubble Festival

Enjoy a sudsy day of fusing art and science with a touch of joyful magic at Discovery Center’s 2023 Bubble Festival on Saturday, September 23. The Festival will include three live shows by professional bubble artist Ben Jimenez as well as the Bubble-Palooza playground for children after each show.

Jimenez combines his unique blend of storytelling, science, magic and bubble art into a show that will both entertain and inspire people of all ages! In his 30-minute bubble shows, Jimenez transforms something as simple as soapy water into amazing bubble stunts, shares bubble science facts and gets the audience involved. After his show, guests are invited to pop over to the Bubble-Palooza Playground to practice their own soapy tricks!

Shows are at 10:00 am, 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Tickets are $3 Members; $5 Public (Museum admission extra $10); free to children ages 1 and younger.
