On April 8, 2024, at 3:25 pm, Plattsburgh, NY, will be on the path of totality for one of nature’s greatest spectacles, the total solar eclipse – a literal once in a lifetime event!  For nearly four minutes - one of the longest durations of any other stop in New York State - the moon will block out the sun and plunge us into darkness, a phenomenon that New York will not see again for decades.  Mind blown right?  And we can tell you that just being close by is NOT good enough!

So come join us on the afternoon of Monday April 8th at the Plattsburgh City Beach for live music provided by local indie rock band, Ursa and the Major Key with local food trucks, activities and more! Local astronomy enthusiast Ephemer ADK will be on site with his telescope sharing information about the eclipse!

Event runs from 12:00PM - 5:00PM

Music will begin at 1:00PM and take a set break during the start of the partial eclipse and total eclipse and then resume once the partial eclipse has ended.
