Upper Peninsula Dark Sky Festival
The Keweenaw Dark Sky Park is hosting its second annual event around International Dark Sky Week. The International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) encourages people worldwide to discover the night during International Dark Sky Week. This annual week-long event aims to raise awareness about the negative impacts of light pollution, the solutions that exist and simultaneously celebrate the night.
The 2024 Upper Peninsula Dark Sky Festival will be held over April 11th, 12th and 13th, and provides three days of learning. Events and workshops will be hosted at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, headquarters for the Keweenaw Dark Sky Park.
The event is intended for all ages of dark sky enthusiasts. The evening event on Thursday allows guests to check into their accommodations, have a meal and then take in the presentation. Friday and Saturday’s events in the afternoon allow guests to have a morning adventure and an afternoon and evening of learning.
***Please note that we started this event last year in conjunction with International Dark Sky Week. This year we moved the event one week later because most guests and presenters would be traveling to view the total solar eclipse.***
