Spacefest

Overview

Spacefest is an annual reunion of NASA Apollo astronauts, famous space scientists, authors, astronomers, space artists and fans. It's been run by space artist Kim Poor and his wife Sally since 2007.

The first SpaceFest was in Mesa in 2007 with seven of the nine people who have walked on the moon in attendance, among a total count of 23 astronauts. All but two of the succeeding events were held in Tucson, with Spacefest II held in San Diego and Spacefest VI in Pasadena.
