Since February, the Mars New Year Committee has been taking the initial steps to broadly scope out the possibilities for the next planet Mars New Year celebration to take place on planet Earth in 2019.
The actual Mars New Year will be celebrated on Thursday, March 21st, 2019. We will have our Blast-Off Dinner at 12 Oaks Mansion that evening with exhibits and fireworks! This will mark the beginning of the Mars New Year educational challenge for middle school age students and others interested in participating at our outdoor spring STEAM ed fair May 31, 2019 – June 2, 2019 in downtown Mars. The committee currently is working on the details. NASA has committed to being here again and we are having positive conversations about Space X being involved too.
The first big fund raiser for the Mars New Year 2019 will be the Mars Brew Fest on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Pittsburgh Street and the town square.
A new website is being developed for Mars New Year 2019 and will be up and running soon. We are also finalizing the sponsor opportunities for the event next year too. So be on the lookout for more details on this special celebration of innovation and exploration centered around the planet Mars in Mars, PA.
