The Great Geauga Total Solar Eclipse

Geauga County is in the path of totality for the total solar eclipse on April 8. To celebrate, Geauga Park District has partnered with The Great Geauga County Fair to host a free large-scale viewing event at the Geauga County Fairgrounds. Plan to come out for The Great Geauga Total Solar Eclipse to receive access to free eclipse-viewing glasses while supplies last and access to loads of activities beginning at 11 a.m. The eclipse itself will last from around 2-4:30 p.m., with the total eclipse beginning at 3:15 p.m. for 3 minutes 27 seconds of darkness in the middle of the afternoon.

A variety of food trucks will be onsite, or bring a picnic; bleacher seating will be available, or bring lawn chairs. No dogs or drones will be permitted. Additional features will include a pop-up nature store with eclipse merchandise, multiple viewing stations with various equipment, citizen science projects, multiple photo ops and more.

Parking lots open at 10:30 a.m. Visit the park district website for a detailed schedule of events.
