Sleep Under The Stars

Sleep Under the Stars 2023

The Fall Sleep Under the Stars is New Castle County's premier fall family event. Families camp overnight in beautiful Carousel Park with fun fall activities provided by New Castle County. This camping event is for the experienced camper and novice alike. Campers enjoy bonfires, a movie under the stars, DJ, Monster Mash dance party, spooky tent decorating, tent-to-tent trick-or-treating, fall crafts, food trucks, and more. Don't forget your s'mores fix'ns! Camping is NOT required - come enjoy the same activities all day, but leave after the movie. $25 per car. Space is limited. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pets or dogs (other than service dogs) are permitted at this event. Tents only camping. All ages.
