The first total solar eclipse to touch the continental United States arrives in Oregon on August 21, 2017! Meteorologists, astronomers, and enthusiasts will be traveling to the Willamette Valley from all over the world, because Salem is in the direct path with the best (and nearly last!) views of the eclipse.
Come view totality among the vines at Willamette Valley Vineyards! We will gather on an east facing vineyard block with a great view of the solar eclipse, which begins partial phase at 9:05 am, with totality expected at 10:17 am. Then stay for a day of festivities including wine tasting, live music and Pacific Northwest cuisine.
A full schedule of activities including admission will be available as the date nears. Sign up to receive our e-newsletters or follow us on facebook and instagram for updates!
