Bryce Canyon Astronomy Festival


There’s no place quite like Bryce Canyon by day, and no time like a new moon in June to enjoy it by night. Astronomy festivals feature family-friendly daytime activities and ranger-led evening programs and constellation tours.

The 2022 Festival is scheduled for June 22-25. Check back soon for an updated schedule of events!
