Yuri's Night is the World Space Party. Every year on or around April 12th we celebrate all that humanity brings with us as we explore the cosmos: music, art, science, culture, and each other! We use space to bring the world together, to empower the greatest parts of who we are, and give vision to where we are going. Join us and rock the planet by planning an event or finding an event. We'd love to hear from you! Drop us a line at [email protected]
