2022 Flagstaff Star Party and Celebration of the Night

Flagstaff Celebrates it’s Star-Filled Night Skies

The 2022 Flagstaff Star Party and Celebration of the Night will bring six weeks of exciting and awe-inspiring events showcasing Flagstaff’s beautiful night skies!

For 2022 we have another exciting program planned, including the return of NightVisions VIII in late spring at the Coconino Center for the Arts, the premier of a new event Sips and Savors under the Stars at Arizona Nordic Center, and the return of the Flagstaff Star Party and Celebration of the Night in September and October 2022! Please stay tuned!

Protection of the night sky began in Flagstaff in 1958 – and Flagstaff continues to set the standard for effective night sky protection. A High Country News story by Peter Friederici – Stargazers defend darkness in Arizona – and David Portree’s award-winning story Flagstaff’s Battle for Dark Skies describe our special history and role in what is now an international dark-sky movement. This article is just one recent example showing what success looks like.
