2024 Total Solar Eclipse Festival in Arcadia Valley April 7 - 8
"Blinded by the Light"

Arcadia Valley is the premier location to see the 2024 total solar eclipse in the United States. Directly in the path of totality the valley will allow full view of the eclipse for almost 3 minutes! Our eclipse festival includes family friendly events, food trucks, games, great open spaces, and the highest elevation in the state so you can be closest to the action.
And don't worry, you won't actually be blinded as we have thousands of protective glasses for sale to attendees! Its our way of making this event fun and safe for the whole family.

Plan to be in Arcadia Valley on April 7 & 8, 2024 and be sure to follow the event on Facebook!
