The Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) Partners to host a new family fundraising event, A Very Merry Night, on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 6-9 p.m.

A Very Merry Night is the premiere holiday event, which will take place on the opening night of MCM’s popular Journey to the North Pole holiday exhibit in Jackson. This magical evening will give families early access to photos with Santa, first access to the 45-foot Snowflake Slide and Reindeer Rink. In addition to delicious food and adult beverages, this night will feature a hot cocoa bar, live DJ, and festive STEAM programming.

Tickets for A Very Merry Night are $25 and host tickets are available for $250. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door (

Journey to the North Pole transforms MCM’s Gertrude C. Ford Exhibition Hall into a magical winter wonderland of snowy skies, glittering holiday decorations, and invitations for memorable family holiday experiences! Just inside the front door, guests will find our enchanting 45-foot Snowflake Slide, cascading over the central staircase, always a favorite for children (and their adults!) Guests must be 36″ or taller to ride down. Also nearby, children will find decorations to build a life-size gingerbread house. An exciting return for everyone is the child-favorite Reindeer Rink for sock skating (children must bring socks for this experience). Journey to the North Pole will be open to the public Nov. 20-Jan. 8 and is included with MCM general admission.

A Very Merry Night is sponsored by Entergy, BCBS Mississippi, Caterpillar (Puckett), Butler Snow, Jones Walker, Community Bank, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, Wier Boerner Allin Architecture, Paula and Randy James, Mississippi Center for Advanced Medicine, Shonda Yates, Miller Lumber Sales, Eagle Express Federal Credit Union, Empower Children’s Clinic, Cathy and George May, The Sam E. and Burnice C.
