National Park Week Kicks Off Today

National Park Week kicks off this weekend and as it has always been the case in recent years, the National Park Service will waive entry fees nationwide for one day.

The weeklong event begins on Saturday, April 20 and runs until Sunday, April 28. Entrance fees will be waived on April 20, 2024, to kick off the celebration and to encourage everyone to enjoy their national parks in person. National Park Service parks, programs, and partners will host events and activities all week.

The National Park Service oversees 429 sites throughout the country, including Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Big Bend national parks and many more. Aside from the popular ones that people visit as part of their big destination vacation, there are also parks that you can visit with little planning. The full list is here, and you can sort by state.

Each day of National Park Week has a special theme to showcase many ways to experience, learn, or get involved with national parks and what we do outside of our park boundaries.
