Held on Friday, September 16, 2016 at the JW Marriott, IMAGINARIUM celebrates Thinkery’s role in “glowing” the future generation of innovators and creative problem solvers—which has inspired the GLOW theme for this year’s event. One of Austin’s most highly anticipated and entertaining events of the year, IMAGINARIUM merges black tie brilliance with gourmet dining, radiant programming, and live and silent auctions. As IMAGINARIUM concludes, attendees are invited to bask in the After Glow—IMAGINARIUM’s inaugural after party—where they will enjoy delicious bites, specialty cocktails, a live DJ, STEAM activities and the opportunity to win amazing prizes.

IMAGINARIUM benefits Thinkery (formerly Austin Children’s Museum) which provides a unique approach to exploring science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) through facilitated experiences ensuring every visit yields new insights and cherished memories for Central Texas families—including those with limited financial resources.
