Yuri’s Night is a global space party “Using Space to Bring the World Together Since 2001.” This international party commemorates the launch of the first human into outer space (Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin).
“Circling the Earth in my orbital spaceship I marveled at the beauty of our planet. People of the world, let us safeguard and enhance this beauty — not destroy it!”
— Yuri Gagarin, 1st human in space.

We are bringing the full sciencey, spacey, futuristic extravaganza home with a bang, and contributing to a great organization at the same time! Our event will be raising funds for TouchSpace, a nonprofit dedicated to providing space and microgravity experiences for K-12 educators. A portion of proceeds will also be donated to Chabot Space and Science Center, a museum and outreach facility that has contributed mightily to space education, and TouchSpace, a space experiences program for educators.
Check out our party agenda on our website for more details, and prepare to rock the planet!
This is a 21+ event.
