Eclipse Festival 2024
Do you want to experience solar eclipse totality – and celebrate it at the place that’s a little more festive?
When the solar eclipse occurs in 2024, Festival Country Indiana, located just south of Indianapolis, will be smack dab in the middle of the path of totality. In Festival Country, you’ll get more than two and a half hours of the eclipse, including more than four minutes of totality.
The eclipse is from 1:50 p.m. to 4:23 p.m. on Monday, April 8, 2024, with totality from approximately 3:05:52 p.m. to 3:09:54 p.m. (all times are Eastern time)
