The annual Dark Sky Festival is a celebration of the return of dark skies to our northern latitude (60°N) and is hosted in the world's largest Dark Sky Preserve, Wood Buffalo National Park.

At the Dark Sky Festival we do not just look at stars, we try to answer your questions about science through fun and interactive activities.  For kids there is the Circus of Science and the Science Academy events, while adults can enjoy guest speakers and workshops.

2019 guest speakers include:

  • Bob McDonald host of CBC's Quirks and Quarks
  • Wilfred Buck, The Star Guy with the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre.
