Astronomer Allan Morton will share his knowledge on Eclipses and afterwards, will help us create a simple, safe way to view the total eclipse next week. All materials will be supplied.
LOST IN THE STARS
Can’t find your way around the night sky. After this program, it will start to feel like home! Join librarian and former National Park Service Night Sky Ranger Catherine Stanton for this basic introduction to astronomy.
IT’S JUST A PHASE
Join us for stories and experiments as we get to know our smaller sister planet in a whole new light! Join librarian and former National Park Service Night Sky Ranger Catherine Stanton for this exploration of science and myth.
We have secured a new location for the 2014 season. We will be IN THE STREET on College Ave – you can’t miss us once you know where to look.
We are open and ready Friday nights 4-8 pm. We have LOTS of food items – dinner and goodies – great for an open air date night. We have lots of other fun things to sample and explore, and of course, we have our produce vendors selling fresh produce and bedding plants to help you get your garden growing with the best starts around.
Come see what is new this year at the market!
Go ahead, be in the dark
On August 21, 2017 most of North America will experience a full solar eclipse. It has been nearly 100 years since an eclipse totality has crossed the U.S. from coast to coast. Rexburg, Idaho is perfectly centered in the path and we will experience 2 minutes 19 seconds of total darkness! There really isn’t a better place to experience this historic event. What’s even better is that the Teton Storytelling and Arts Festival is just two days before the eclipse – Saturday, August 19. Plan now for an epic weekend; come to Rexburg for the Teton Storytelling and Arts Festival Saturday and stay for the eclipse on Monday.
This is the inaugural year for the Teton Storytelling and Arts Festival but that doesn’t mean we’re small potatoes ; ) We have several major, nationally known storytellers coming to headline our festival. When add to that a lineup of award winning regional tellers, this will be one of the best storytelling events anywhere in the nation.
Don’t forget about our many inspiring artists who will be here making, sharing, and selling art. We’re new, but we’re destined to become one of the premiere festivals in the country. Plan now to join us!
