Hosted by the International Dark-Sky Association Texas Section (IDA Texas), Hays County Chapter Texas Master Naturalist and the City of Dripping Springs, the intent of the festival is to increase appreciation of the night sky and promote the protection and enjoyment of one of the Earth’s most beautiful and natural resources.

With something for everyone, the Festival will kick off at 2 pm with fun activities, a display of selected entries in the event's photo and art contests, solar observations, a mobile planetarium, exhibits from our Texas Dark Sky Places, demonstrations of good lighting, tasty food, and a good old-fashioned Star Party where you look at the stars through telescopes or bring you camp chair to bask in the starlight.

There will be engaging exhibits with hands-on activities providing the opportunity to earn the Dark Sky patch.

For companies, organizations, and individuals that are interested in becoming a sponsor of the event, multiple levels of sponsorship are available. Sponsorship donations are tax deductible. CLICK HERE for Sponsorship and Exhibit Forms. Please call 512-858-4725 if you need additional information.
