Death Valley Dark Sky Festival will be February 21-23, 2020.

Explore the park’s unique landscape and dark night skies that help us better understand the wonders beyond our world. This event is a collaboration between the park, Death Valley Natural History Association, NASA, and many other organizations.

Death Valley offers some of the best stargazing in America. The International Dark-Sky Association has designated Death Valley National Park as a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park, the highest rating of darkness.

During the day, the Dark Sky Festival features guided hikes, ranger talks, family programming, and an exploration fair. At night, visitors can attend evening programs, night sky photography meet ups, and a star party.

Wondering about camping options? Many of the activities will be hosted around the Furnace Creek Visitor Center with hikes led throughout the park. Find information about camping options on our website.
