Join astronomers, rangers, and historians as they come together for a three-day festival celebrating North Dakota's starry nights and rich heritage!

Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Historic Medora welcome you to evenings of star viewing, presentations by nationally recognized speakers, rocket building and launching, solar system hikes, and much more as we celebrate Dakota Nights!

Festival activites are free (except where noted). Entrance fees to Theodore Roosevelt National Park still apply.
