Welcome to AstroFest!
Since 1999, Penn State Astronomy students, faculty, and friends have been inviting the public to Davey Lab at the Penn State University Park campus for AstroFest, a four night festival of Astronomy held concurrently with the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. AstroFest features many exciting activities, talks, and presentations, including stargazing through the telescopes on the roof of Davey Lab.
You are invited to join us for AstroFest at Davey Lab from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. the evenings of Wednesday, July 12 through Saturday, July 15. This event is free and open to the public; no registration or reservation necessary, nor is this a "wristband event" associated with the Arts Fest downtown.

If you are unable to attend AstroFest in-person this year, you can still visit this "virtual lobby" — a portal to many of our past recorded presentations and activities. It runs in your computer's web browser; you may also need to disable pop-up blockers while using the site (unavailable on mobile devices).
