The 8th Annual Dark Sky Festival is a celebration of the return of dark skies to our northern latitude (60° N). 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, we offer our Stellar Seminars and other practical workshops.
