Dark Sky Party

January 25 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Learn about the night sky with astronomers, meet animals who survive in the dark, and enjoy a special astronomy inspired carillon concert. Darkness adds to the aesthetic qualities of the wildness and is important to the health of wildlife. As most of the world faces the effects of artificial light pollution, the Dark Sky Festival aims to educate citizens about the importance and magic of natural darkness. Learn how you can make the darkness enjoyable and safe for all Earth’s inhabitants. Included in general admission, free for members.*

Grab some protein before you start stargazing with Chef Fulwood’s Spaceballs 2.0. Enjoy two large, made-from-scratch meatballs served with homemade sauce and buttery, garlic toast. Special will be available inside the Blue Palmetto Café. Meal is $10 per person, plus tax. Members receive 10% discount. Special will be available inside the Blue Palmetto Café.
