Scheduled at Medawisla Lodge for October 15 - 22 around the New Moon for optimal stargazing, the festival will provide the opportunity for guests to learn more about dark sky conservation and strengthen their appreciation of the ways in which they can make an impact. Consistent with the Appalachian Mountain Club’s mission, the dark skies are an important ecological resource and a thrilling outdoor experience that should be conserved. In fact, AMC’s Maine Woods International Dark Sky Park is one of the best places for stargazing in the region. Enjoy star themed dinners and desserts, plus expert presentations from astronomers, scientists, musicians, and artists. Visit the Dark Sky Festival website for more information.
Programs and tours will be provided at no additional cost for guests staying overnight at the lodge. Evening dinner and presentation tickets will be available for those staying locally and are available by making dinner reservations directly through the lodge.
