Stargazing festival by Yorkshire Dales National Park

The annual Yorkshire Dales Parks Dark Skies Festival in 2024 takes place from the 9th of February to the 25th of February.

The festival, run in collaboration with the North York Moors National Park, includes various events, from night-time nature walks, wellbeing and mindfulness sessions to stargazing with astronomers and giant telescopes! Events occur at numerous venues across the national park.

It’s an excellent opportunity to visit the region officially recognised by the International Dark-Sky Association as a Dark Sky Reserve in 2020.

Here we feature stargazing events taking place as part of this year’s festival; for a complete list of events, see the official Yorkshire Dales Parks Dark Skies Festival website.

Please note that this has already taken place on 09/02/2024
