Additional Services

Complement your event with these additional offerings.


Your guests will enjoy getting professional keepsake portraits set against their choice of an aquarium scene, ready for pickup at the end of the event. The photo service can also provide you with an on-site photo booth for your event. You can coordinate services by working directly with a devoted photo representative.

Tables and Settings

Your Azure event manager will provide you with information about our linen selection and prices. The fee for equipment rental is based on that evening’s delivery, setup, tear down and removal after the event.

Coat Check

The inclusion of a hosted coat check with rolling racks can be arranged. We also offer self-check coat racks for your guests.


The north Soldier Field parking garage and east parking lot between the Field Museum and Shedd are available as an added feature. Valet parking is permitted but must be arranged ahead of time. Contact information for parking on the campus can be provided. 

Event Favors

Let your guests peruse a wide variety of aquatic-themed items in our gift stores. Or surprise your guests with a return visit to Shedd, either with Shedd tickets, CityPASS, or one of our acclaimed Extraordinary Experiences (subject to availability). You can coordinate by working directly with your Azure representative.

Make a Difference

In lieu of the “traditional” event favors for your guests, your Azure representative can work with the Shedd Aquarium in arranging a donation that supports the work of Shedd, which is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization.


Azure staff members will be on-hand to assist your guests and answer questions. Our security team will also be on-site during your event.
