On August 26 & 27, 2022, the Julian StarFest graced the dark skies of the Menghini Winery in Julian. See description below:
This is a fantastic opportunity to set up your telescope at a nearby dark sky location. Come and meet or renew those friendships with other SDAA Members. JSF will also include many of the same activities as in the past:
- Free public star party on Saturday night, August 27
- Camping availability for tent and RV campers from August 26 to 28
- Woody’s Mobile Observatory
- Astronomy games and crafts for kids
- Raffle for donated astronomy equipment on Saturday
- Optional behind the scenes tour of the Mount Laguna Observatory on Saturday, August 27
JSF is fun way for members and non-members alike to share in the joy of astronomy. In addition, JSF attendees will also be able to visit the Menghini Winery and the nearby town of Julian, well known for its apple pies, gifts, specialty shops and hospitality.
