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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
