Why? Yuri’s Night Giveaway!

“Circling the Earth in my orbital spaceship I marveled at the beauty of our planet. People of the world, let us safeguard and enhance this beauty — not destroy it!” – Yuri Gagarin

The Great Lakes Science Center is preparing for Yuri’s Night 2017, one of the hottest parties in Cleveland. Yuri’s Night celebrates Yuri Gagarin, who was the first human to complete an orbit of the Earth, as well as all the achievements in space flight since then.


On Saturday, April 8, the Great Lakes Science Center will be filled with food, drink, music, and fun in celebration of Yuri’s Night. Tricky Dick and the Cover-Ups will keep the dance floor packed. There will also be a space-themed costume contest and a scavenger hunt, if you’re feeling like showing off your competitive side. Add to this an open bar, appetizers, a chance for conversation with Astronaut Greg Johnson, and amazing lakefront views, and you have all the makings of a cosmically fantastic night!

VIP tickets for Yuri’s Night are $100 and include early admission, access to the VIP lounge with it’s own bar and additional menu items from restaurants like Melt Bar & Grilled and Sushi 86, and complimentary parking. General admission tickets are $60 in advance and include open bar, appetizers and specialty bites, live entertainment and demonstrations, and access to the scavenger hunt. Tickets for Yuri’s Night are currently on sale online.
