Yuri’s Night is a global space party “Using Space to Bring the World Together Since 2001.” This international party commemorates the launch of the first human into outer space, Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.

“Circling the Earth in my orbital spaceship I marveled at the beauty of our planet. People of the world, let us safeguard and enhance this beauty — not destroy it!” — Yuri Gagarin, 1st human in space.

In 2017 Yuri’s Night had 106 Events in 29 Countries on 7 Continents. 
We hope to see you dream, explore, and celebrate with us at the hundreds of YN events held around the world each April. Yuri’s Night is the World Space Party. Every April 12th we bring the world together to dream about where we’re going, explore where we are, and celebrate where we’ve been. Join us and rock the planet by planning an event or finding an event. Member of the press? Get a quick idea of Yuri’s Night and our current efforts. We’d love to hear from you!
