Brazosport Planetarium Special Events
Each Fall and Spring, Brazosport Planetarium hosts Astronomy Day. On this day, our local advocational astronomers set up their telescopes and hands-on astronomy activities in the parking lot of The Center for the Arts & Sciences. When the skies are clear, participants are encouraged to view celestial objects in our night sky. The event starts promptly at 4:00 PM and lasts until 10:00 PM. In addition to the telescopes and related activities, the planetarium will present a short show periodically throughout the evening. This is event takes place “rain or shine” and is FREE to the public! Check our event listing and plan to attend our next Astronomy Day!
Brazosport Planetarium Scholastic Bowl
As one of the most anticipated events of the year, Brazosport Planetarium’s Scholastic Bowl welcomes adult and high-school teams to The Center for the Arts & Sciences’ Freeport LNG Theater for an evening of trivia and fun. Teams of four sit together and, over three rounds, answer a litany of questions concerning, art, science, pop culture and local interests.
Scholastic Bowl is the main fundraising event for Brazosport Planetarium and relies on the entry fees, individual and corporate sponsorships for this event to help fund its educational activities throughout the year.
