The first ‘Las Cruces Space Festival’ will be held in April 2018, celebrating space-related heritage, activity and interest in southern New Mexico.
Locals as well as visitors from outside the region are invited to join in the three days and evenings of this annual event, which will promote awareness and development of space-related activity in the region:
* Displays, ‘Mars Missions’, Movies, Talks, Hands-on Activities, a ‘Space Walk’, Star Gazing, Space Hardware, Special Guests and much more *
Space-related activity in the region is already significant, and that is set to grow in the coming years - it will create jobs, offer prospects for our youth, and draw in skills, experience and knowledge from elsewhere.
a few space-related ‘characters’ at any of our activities would be fun!

You might also be interested in having a booth on the 13th or 14th to fundraise (no cost).

Festival details are posted on our website: www.lcspacefestival.com
- more detail will be added very soon.
