31st Annual Flagstaff Festival of Science – September 18 – 27
The Flagstaff National Monuments will once again be a part of an annual event that helps make Flagstaff special – the 31st Annual Flagstaff Festival of Science. From September 18th – 27th, Flagstaff will celebrate science with 10 days of virtual and in-person events.
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the format, but not the quality of events. The 31st Annual Festival of Science will be largely virtual, with a handful of outdoor, in-person events. Although the format will be different, the great line-up will be no less interesting and fascinating.
We hope that you can all attend and share with your friends.
The Flagstaff National Monuments are on the schedule with virtual and in-person events.
