Milky Way Days

  • Edmonton, Alberta
  • September 1 2018 to September 2 2018

Canada has always been a land of vibrant skyscapes. As part of the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve, skies above Elk Island National Park are naturally dark and regularly show-off twinkling stars or dancing Northern Lights.

Taking place over two days at two different locations, the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve’s 13th annual Star Party will be your gateway to the stars. Featuring volunteer astronomers to provide you with stargazing tips, guest speakers to cause you to marvel at the sky, and local musical performances to fill the air with festive spirit, this 2 day event will keep your whole family entertained.

The Star Party will be at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park on Saturday Sept. 1 and at Elk Island National Park on Sunday Sept 2, 2018.
