Registration for 2018 OSP is now Open!

The Oregon Star Party Planning Committee is pleased to announce the opening of registration for the 31st annual Oregon Star Party.  This year’s star party will take place from August 7 through August 12, 2018 at Indian Trail Spring in the Ochoco National Forest.  Well known for its dark skies, Oregon Star Party is one of the largest annual star parties in the United States.

Registration for the event can be found by going to the registration page here.  Each registration is limited to four people. If you need to register more people please repeat the registration process. Regular registration will close on July 6, 2018.  If the event sells out there will be no on-site registration.

Important note about meals

We are not offering pre-sold meals for OSP 2018 at this time. The OSP committee is working to find a new food vendor for this year’s star party, but we felt that we could no longer postpone the opening of registration.  Those wanting to purchase meals are asked to register for them now so we have a count, but you will not be charged for them when you register.

Artwork Contest

Finally, the winner of the artwork contest is Carolyn Nissen.  Congrats!!!

Oregon Star Party’s goal is to provide attendees the opportunity to meet people who share an interest in astronomy, learn something new, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, and just plain have fun. We welcome and encourage families and amateur astronomers of all ages.  Visit our website for more information.

We hope you’ll join us at the Oregon Star Party.
