Kennedy Under the Stars After Hours Event

On the evening of February 2, 2024, gain exclusive after-hours access to your favorite attractions, but with a dazzling twist. Enjoy Kennedy Under the Stars at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.


The colors of the cosmos come to life with glow-in-the-dark elements like a DJ-led techno party, Cosmic Glow Miniature Golf, bar and lounge areas illuminated with an array of colors, and eye-popping chalk art crafted by local artists.

Plus, where else on Earth can you spend your Friday night with those who have traveled beyond our atmosphere? Veteran NASA astronauts Chris Ferguson and Nicole Stott will mingle with guests throughout the evening.

The main visitor complex’s key attractions will remain open with lower wait times, so you’ll have more time to venture to other worlds in Spaceport KSC, get up close with actual flight-flown artifacts like space shuttle Atlantis and a SpaceX Falcon 9 booster, feel the rumble aboard the Shuttle Launch Experience® and more.

Select main visitor complex restaurants and retail stores will also be open during this specially ticketed event. For an additional charge, enjoy signature cocktails at different bars as well as fun menu items. Annual pass holders attending the event will receive discounts on food and a 30% savings on retail items. Tickets for all ages are $65 (plus tax).

Finally, the evening would not be complete without your best space-themed costume. Dress to impress and have fun, but for security reasons, costumed masks that conceal your face are prohibited, as are any props that resemble weapons.

Tickets for Kennedy Under the Stars are $65 plus tax, per person. Annual pass holders can purchase tickets for $55 plus tax. Parking for this event is complimentary. From 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. guests will be able to explore all main campus attractions and experiences like Space Shuttle Atlantis, Shuttle Launch Experience, Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex®, Spaceport KSC and more.
