Join us in celebrating the first anniversary of NASA's Perseverance rover landing on Mars! Since landing on February 18, 2021, Perseverance has been hunting for signs of ancient microbial life in order to collect and store samples of Martian rock and sediment to be retrieved by planned future missions for closer study on Earth. 

At this weekend festival you can experience a full-scale, lifelike model of Perseverance and hear directly from Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientists and engineers about the rover, what it's finding, and NASA’s Mars Exploration Program. And, experience youth and artist-made projects and hands-on activities inspired by space exploration!
