Holidays in Space 2022

Dec 16, 2022 - Dec 30, 2022 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex invites you to join this year's Holidays in Space sponsored by Pepsi Zero Sugar® featuring a brand-new projection mapping show - Starflake's Holiday Voyage - on the outside of Gateway®: The Deep Space Launch Complex, festive holiday décor, performances and more, happening December 16 through 30*.

The unique projection mapping show will take you on a breathtaking six-minute-long journey through the stars, earth, and beyond. You will recognize familiar places throughout the journey - including the Vehicle Assembly Building, Artemis, International Space Station, James Webb Space Telescope and more. You can catch it nightly throughout Holidays in Space.

As you make your way through the front gate, you will look in wonder at the festive holiday décor that has taken over the visitor complex. New décor includes - a 50 foot tree illuminating the Rocket Garden and Gateway with more than 61,000 pixels of light, six-foot-tall astronaut nutcrackers and more. You will also see the return of your favorite décor, such as the NASA meatball turned holiday ornament.

Also enjoy:

  • Roaming street performances by a singing duo
  • Comedy act in joyful outfits helping to spread holiday cheer
  • Mini golf, corn hole, and connect four (located at the pavilion next to Space Shuttle Atlantis®)


Don't miss out on the opportunity to send a postcard to space aboard one of Blue Origin's New Shepard rockets! On December 27 - 29 (10 AM to 2 PM), Blue Origin will be on the bottom floor of Space Shuttle Atlantis® showing you how you can take part in a unique opportunity.
