Event Description

Acadia Night Sky Festival
Acadia National Park Bar Harbor, ME
Thursday through Sunday, September 22nd-25th, 2016

The eighth annual Acadia Night Sky Festival, one of the premier night sky events on the eastern seaboard, will take place on September 22-25th on Mount Desert Island and the Schoodic Peninsula in Maine. The festival is packed full with events, including workshops, nationally recognized speakers and hands-on experiences. There is truly something for everyone, from families to the serious amateur astronomer.

Maine's spectacular rocky coast is home to some of the last pristine, star-filled night skies thanks to Acadia National Park and the support of the surrounding communities in reducing light pollution. The Acadia Night Sky Festival is a community celebration that promotes the protection and enjoyment of Downeast/Acadia's stellar night sky.
