Thebacha & Wood Buffalo Dark Sky Festival

August 18-20, 2017

The annual Dark Sky Festival is a celebration of the return of dark skies to our northern latitude (60°N) and is hosted during the third weekend of August. Festival activities take place in Fort Smith, NWT and the in 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.  As well, for teen and adult participants we offer our Stellar Seminars along with many practical workshops, such as aurora photography.
