Mess Fest

Date & Time

Mess Fest

June 30 & July 1, 11:00AM–4PM


Celebrate all things messy at the Connecticut Science Center’s Mess Fest on June 30 and July 1. Have fun inside and outside with bubbles, slime, rockets, and more. We’ll make things explode, experiment with dry ice, air cannons, and so much more —all in the name of science, of course! Plus, you won’t want to miss the Double-dare inspired Mess Fest Games or the special world-famous theater show Bubblemania with Casey Carle.

Most activities are included with General Admission or Science Center Membership. There is an additional ticket required for the Bubblemania show.

WARNING! Our goal is to get as messy as possible, consider dressing down or bringing a change of clothes. Most activities are included in the cost of General Admission.

Casey Carle’s BubbleMania Show

An extremely unique theater show combining high energy entertainment with artistic achievement, BubbleMania is loaded with visual comedy, quick wit, big band swing music and the untamed, often unbelievable qualities and beauty of spherical liquids. Casey’s creations grow from intricate and imaginative bubble art forms to “trapping” people inside bubbles!
