September 15-17, 2017
Join astronomers, rangers, and historians as they come together for a three-day festival celebrating North Dakota's starry nights and rich heritage! Stand under the expansive night sky that influenced cultures of American Indian tribes, inspired modern space exploration, and is still yours to experience today!
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!
Most activities are included with your park entry fee, except when otherwise noted.
Contact the park if you are interested in volunteering for the event.
