2019 is the 50th anniversary of four Apollo missions, including Apollo 11, the first manned landing on the moon.

Spacefest X has been confirmed and scheduled for August 8-11, 2019 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona.

Ticket details will be announced later!

We realize that these August dates may conflict with some school schedules, but with so many of our guests scheduled to attend other 50th anniversary events earlier in the year, especially leading up to July 20, these were the best dates we could find to avoid conflicts, while still having reasonable room rates at the Marriott.

Will there eventually be a Galactic Package again when ticket sales start?

Book flights early and you'll be fine, around the £500 area is a good price.

Answering some previous questions:
  1. No, there will not be a Galactic Package this year, only Universal and Stellar.

  2. Yes, the hotel is accepting reservations at the reduced rate ($109/night). More info and hotel link/phone number near bottom of Spacefest's ticket page.

I didn't see Dave Scott on the Spacefest 2019 guest list but I know he was on an earlier list - anyone know if he's a definite commitment (or did I not see something)?

It appears Scott is among a short list of astronauts who had previously been listed attending but no longer appear on the website (also including Bo Bobko, Vance Brand and Kathy Thornton). On the upside, Pinky Nelson, Rhea Seddon and Nicole Stott have been added.

Dave Scott has told us that he is planning to attend, but is not ready to fully commit until closer to show time. This is why we removed the "confirmed" note from his photo on the website.
