Blast Off at Our Starry, Starry Night Festival
Starry, Starry Night

Join us as we celebrate mankind's fascination with the skies and beyond at a special nighttime arts festival: Starry, Starry Night begins on Thursday, June 22 at 6pm and concludes the following morning with a delicious pancake breakfast!

Explore the galaxy through art-making activities, films, music, and more! You'll have a chance to see the progress of our astronomy-themed Summer Camps from the week, view constellations through telescopes set out on the Great Lawn, experience a mini planetarium, and learn a thing or two about our vast universe. 

Art activities include contributing to a glow-in-the-dark constellation installation, designing a space colony or intergalactic rocket, painting nighttime scenes inspired by Van Gogh and Hopper, and more. You'll hear poetry and stories celebrating the night sky, have a chance to take a guided night hike, and enjoy screenings of the movies Space Camp and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on the Garden Terrace.

It's going to be an unforgettable evening! And if you like, you and the kids can spend the night on the Great Lawn and wake up to a freshly-prepared breakfast in the Villa. Staying overnight is completely optional; if you bring a tent, please do not use stakes. 

Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for children under 18 (all children must be accompanied by an adult). Click the button below or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858, Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm. 
As a special offer, you'll receive a 10% discount code for camps taking place June 19-23 when you purchase! See your print-at-home ticket for the offer code.
