Sacramento Valley Astronomical Society

School Star Parties

School star parties are events where SVAS volunteers go out to a host organization’s planned event with telescopes and educational astronomy presentations and activities. Please note that this is an educational, not entertainment, program. For those who qualify we will travel to an appropriate location of your choice within a 30 mile radius of Sacramento.

Please be sure to read all of the guidelines before requesting to schedule a date. There are no fees for this service, but donations to SVAS are accepted.


The following requirements are to help ensure the maximum benefit of our free programs. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please note: This is a free, volunteer service and so there is no guarantee for volunteer attendance. We will try our best to make sure there are plenty of volunteers for your event but we are dependent upon volunteer availability.
