Yuri's Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's first manned spaceflight in 1961, and the inaugural launch of NASA's Space Shuttle in 1981. The Space Foundation's annual Yuri's Night celebrates all global space achievements, and gives the public the opportunity to meet and interact with key participants in the coming week's Space Symposium.
The Space Foundation's 2018 Yuri's Night will be held Sunday evening, April 15, at the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs. This is an adults-only event, and proceeds will benefit STEM education programs. Meet astronauts, enjoy our photo bar, sample adult beverages and celebrate all things space at Space Foundation Yuri's Night. Buy tickets now here.
