This Spectacular Stargazing Festival In Virginia Promises Pure Magic

Attention, all stargazing enthusiasts!

There’s a festival in the works for Friday, August 9th through Sunday, August 11th and it’s centered around everyone’s favorite camping activity: stargazing. The Night Sky Festival in Shenandoah National Park is a magic-filled weekend of all things astronomy: telescope viewing, expert-led discussions about the night sky as an important resource, Junior Ranger programs, and of course, good old fashioned star gazing.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
