Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime total solar eclipse over Northeast Ohio on Monday, April 8th, 2024 at 3:13PM!

Celebrate this extraordinary event with us from 11am-5pm on Monday, April 8th at one of the most iconic outdoor venues in Northeast Ohio—the Holden Arboretum! Just 20 minutes from downtown Cleveland with 3,500 acres of gorgeous grounds, Total Eclipse of the Arboretum will be THE viewing event in the area, featuring food trucks, activities and plenty of space to take in the eclipse. Bring chairs and blankets, a picnic, and even the dog to experience the eclipse with family and friends in a stunning outdoor setting. The Canopy Walk will be open to ticketholders during event hours, and the Emergent Tower will be open from 11am-1pm. Come early to claim a viewing spot and spend the day at the Arboretum.  

This event is currently sold out. Tickets include solar eclipse glasses, parking for one vehicle, admission to the Arboretum, entertainment by DJ Kris Koch, and access to onsite activities and food trucks.

Please note due to an increase in local traffic expected throughout Lake and surrounding counties, your travel time will be impacted. Sperry Road will be closed to non-ticket holders all day on April 8. 

A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the Sun. The Moon’s shadow will darken the sky for almost 4 minutes! It is rare to be in the path of totality, and this occurrence won’t happen again in northeast Ohio until the year 2444.

The only time it is safe to look directly at the Sun without protection is during the full eclipse (totality) phase, when the Moon is completely blocking the view of the Sun. During all other phases of the eclipse, special solar viewers or “eclipse glasses” must be worn to avoid damaging your eyes. Common sunglasses are not dark enough, and therefore not a safe alternative to view the Sun.

A pair of certified eclipse watching glasses will be included with the purchase of a ticket to our viewing party.

The Holden Arboretum is within the path of totality, and will experience a total solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024.
