Want to adopt one of Lolita’s brothers or sisters? You’re in luck, because Whale and Dolphin Conservation just donated a whale adoption (along with some other goodies) to the ever-expanding Mermaid Treasure Chest!
WDC is one of the charities we’ll be supporting this year, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to support our cetacean friends.
It has happened before and it will happen again. . .
Legend tells that for one night a year the enchanted waters of the Mermaid Lagoon are safe for mortal travelers. The mermaids ask only that you make an offering to The Sea, and dance with them…
On February 5th, the Mermaid Lagoon will return to New York City for just one night. It is the 5th annual ocean benefit held by the Mermaids of NYC. You might recall that previous Lagoons have referenced the deep of summer as the time the mermaids allow humans safe passage through their world. This year, we will evoke the mermaids of Antarctica by celebrating during the southern hemisphere’s summer.
Come dressed for a cold night on high seas of ice and snow and an evening of performance, dance, games, revelry, and song as we dig deep to give back to our oceans. Remember your connection to the sea, and celebrate its enchantment, mystery, and beauty in a glowing winter lagoon full of dancing ice mermaids, projected ocean dreamscapes, pirate games by Pirate Fiesta, and bio-luminescent sea life.
This year’s ocean benefit will send money to our local Hudson Riverkeeper, and Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), an organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of cetaceans throughout the world.

*Mermaid Lagoon is not affiliated in any manner with the Riverkeeper, WDC, Coney Island USA, or any of their programs, projects or websites
Check out our beautiful new venue, Lot 45. They serve food as well as drinks, so you’ll be happy all night long.
*Not affiliated with, but very much fond of, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade
Due to the tragic early closing of The Muse, we are POSTPONING the Lagoon in to the new year. More details to come.
Please don’t worry about your safety at the lagoon. Mermaids never fully accepted the change from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, and we consider all human forms of timekeeping inferior to the ones that we use. It’s safe to enter the Lagoon when we say it’s safe…
Many thanks to Stefan for shooting and editing our mermaid message.
