Dark Sky Festival – WAITLIST

September 27 @ 5:00 pm - September 29 @ 11:00 am

Dark Sky Festival

Come to PLAYA for our first annual Dark Sky Festival!

PLAYA staff are joining forces with central National experts in dark-sky gazing to host PLAYA’s first official Dark Sky Festival. We’ll explore Oregon’s fall constellations, principles of astrophotography, the Milky Way, the deep silence of night on the playa, and other wonderful aspects of life in the sparsely populated Oregon Outback.

The weekend includes two nights in a private cabin at PLAYA or Summer Lake Hot Springs, with full in-cabin kitchens for preparing your own breakfasts and lunches. Light dinner fare will be served Saturday evening for all Dark Sky guests staying at either location. Those in PLAYA cabins, please call the PLAYA office for information about Friday evening dinner, 541.943.3983.

To get you excited here is an article about Dark Skies from the New York Times, https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/03/travel/stargazing-trips.html

WE ARE TAKING NAMES ON THIS WAITLIST since we have found more accommodation options. Interested parties please sign up, and we’ll be in touch if spots open up. Waitlist here: https://goo.gl/forms/yWi19x4HN9ggLTV82
