Las Cruces Space Festival 2019 will run from April 7th-13th.
2019’s Las Cruces Space Festival will launch with a free ‘Open House’ at Spaceport America on April 7th. Everyone will have an opportunity to see the updated facilities at Spaceport America – the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport – and to look behind the scenes at the Virgin Galactic ‘Gateway to Space’ facility. There will be a fly-in of planes from across the State and Country. Entertainment will also include radio-controlled planes, robotics displays and an excerpt from the play ‘Yuri‘ (a part fact, mostly imagined, tale of the first human spaceflight.) There will be a chance to meet the spaceport teams, and see some rocket launches from the vertical launch area. Visitors will also be encouraged to check out the ‘Spaceport America Visitor Center’ in nearby Truth or Consequences, NM. Advanced registration is required for all who want to attend. Registration opens in January.
Please consider sponsoring the 2019 Las Cruces Space Festival. Without support from businesses and individuals, we wouldn’t be able to produce this event for free to the public.
