Yuri's Night has been using space to bring the world together since 2001. It was all born here in L.A. in a lab at Caltech! Loretta and George Whitesides are the creators of Yuri's Night and are honored to be at the L.A. event this year which will have over 100 events worldwide including a greeting from the Astronauts aboard the International Space Station! The event honors the coincidental anniversaries of the 1st human to go into space, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961 and the 1st Space Shuttle launch on 12 April 1981. It invites people around the world to come together to celebrate our love of space and our dreams for humanity's future in space.
Note: While Yuri's Night supporters of all ages are welcome, it will be a very nightclub-like party with alcohol, adult costumes and music, especially after 8:00 p.m. Please plan accordingly. Thank You.
Transfers and Refunds: You can transfer your additional tickets to a different guest if needed (please limit this as it will really slow the check in process for other party goers!). All Yuri's Night ticket sales, like most other concerts and events, are final. Thank you for your support! This event is for Yuri's Night supporters and the members/employees of our sponsors only. It is not open to the general public.
