Elachee Solar Eclipse Festival
Date & Time
August 19th, 2017 10:00 AM
Saturday, August 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Are you ready for a once in a lifetime natural phenomenon? Elachee invites you to a pre-eclipse astronomy day. We will help prepare to safely experience the awe-inspiring eclipse of the Sun that will blanket northeast Georgia on Monday, August 21, 2017.
Program Fee: Pay at the Gate
Admission fee includes solar eclipse safety glasses for each paid guest (while supplies last), along with entry to Elachee’s Visitor Center, Natural History and Live Animal Exhibits. IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the current demand for solar eclipse safety glasses, Elachee will not sell additional glasses to paid guests. If any glasses remain at the conclusion of the festival, Elachee will sell these through the Nature Shop until 5 p.m. Saturday.
