Prepare for an unforgettable experience as the Rochester/Finger Lakes area gears up to host one of nature’s most spectacular shows—the Total Solar Eclipse. Set against the backdrop of our scenic trail, we’ve curated the ultimate viewing guide to ensure you don’t miss a moment of this rare celestial event.

Mark your calendars for April 8th and join us as we immerse ourselves in three minutes and thirty-eight seconds of complete totality, beginning at 3:20 pm. From 2:07 pm to 4:33 pm, nature’s grand spectacle will unfold before our eyes, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the cosmic ballet of the sun and moon.

But the excitement doesn’t end there. Our member locations have prepared a lineup of activities to complement your eclipse experience. Indulge in delicious food, groove to live music, and enjoy panoramic views while you bask in the eclipse’s glory.

The next total eclipse in the United States won’t occur until 2045, so seize the opportunity and join us as we celebrate the wonders of the universe in the heart of the Rochester/Finger Lakes region.
