Celebrate new tech for the final frontier and catch a weekend of rock concerts at the Moon 2 Mars Festival, presented by Wellby Financial, at Space Center Houston from Saturday, March 11 to Sunday, March 19, 2023.
This weekend, the Moon 2 Mars Festival returns to Space Center Houston, offering a week of Spring Break family fun, insightful ventures into space tech, and a weekend of headlining concerts from critically-acclaimed bands and Grammy-winning artists to close out the festivities.
Throughout the festival, visitors can dive into virtual reality activities to get a glimpse of cutting-edge space technology, plus they’ll have an opportunity to meet with NASA astronauts and start a training crash course in the THINK Neurology Future Astronaut Training Grounds Kid’s Zone. Tickets also grant access to Space Center Houston’s main exhibition halls, so you can take full advantage of your out-of-this-world trip by exploring many of the museum’s notable exhibits and booking a tram tour while on campus.
