While entry to the Immerse festival is free, there are general admission and VIP tickets available which will give you closer access to the stage area, entry into exhibits and even participation in Color Day, which features “colored powder fights, bright eruptions of foam, live performances and tons of bubbles.”

One of the interactive art exhibitions being offered is called “JOYBOX” that encourages visitors to experience joy with installations “inspired by the catchy phrases we all know about happiness.” This exhibition features a “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” room where “guests write one personal worry on a piece of paper, run it through a paper shredder installed in the walls and celebrate the releasing of that worry.”

Due to COVID-19, the event will be offering seating areas that guests can use to distance from other parties.
