Camp Verde Dark Sky Festival
In October 2018, Camp Verde held its inaugural Dark Sky Festival to celebrate becoming an official International Dark Sky Community. With educational activities for the whole family, workshops and speeches from astronomy experts, and stargazing in the field with telescopes, this festival welcomed 437 participants to learn more about why we need to protect Camp Verde’s Dark Sky and how we can do it together!
Mark your calendars now for the 2nd Camp Verde Dark Sky Festival-Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at the Community Center and Field, 51 E Hollamon St.
Join Camp Verde and nearby communities in celebrating our night sky! Star parties provide attendees with the opportunity to see the night sky constellations, star clusters, galaxies, and even planets!
