The 2020 Black Canyon Astronomy Festival has been cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns. We look forward to showing you our stars in 2021!

Dark skies are a thing to be celebrated. Every year, Black Canyon hosts an Astronomy Festival to provide the opportunity for visitors to experience this disappearing resource.

All events will occur on the South Rim of the park. Events may include solar viewing and astronomy activities during the day and ranger talks, guest speaker programs, and telescope viewing each night. Rangers, volunteers, and the Black Canyon Astronomical Society (BCAS) will provide telescopes for viewing.
