SummerFest


Space Camp SummerFest is an annual three-day celebration at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center meant to bring together our community of Camp alumni and their families from all over the world, allowing them to reconnect with friends and applaud the accomplishments of fellow alumni.

This year’s event is July 13-15 and is packed with exciting activities for your whole family. The weekend includes sample astronaut training missions, special astronaut appearances, the 2017 Space Camp Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony, and the grand finale concert in Shuttle Park featuring a high-energy performance from the rocking party band, “Party of the Year,” produced by the popular performers in “The Black Jacket Symphony.”

The Huntsville Marriott, located on our property, is offering special weekend rates for Space Camp SummerFest guests. Click here for room information.
