Once in a Lifetime

Enjoy the weekend of the solar eclipse in Miami County, Ohio

On Monday, April 8, 2024, Ohio residents and visitors will be able to experience something that won’t happen in Ohio again until 2099—a total solar eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and earth, completely blocking the sun. The last one in Ohio occurred in 1806.

In Ohio, the totality path is expected to be about 124 miles wide and the state’s message to eclipse viewers is Come Early, Stay Late, to help ease the stress on the roadways. Miami County is in the path of totality for the 2024 eclipse.

Activities are being planned at more than a dozen locations around Miami County from Friday until Monday night including many of the county’s public libraries, parks, the Fairgrounds and downtown areas. Viewers are encouraged to come in Friday and be ready to have some fun throughout the weekend as everyone gets hyped for this celestial event. To keep everyone informed, residents and visitors can visit miamicountysolareclipse.com to gather information on Miami County eclipse events, places to stay, things to do and where to view.
