Solar Eclipse Events In Niagara That Aren’t Completely Sold Out…Yet

Niagara Solar Eclipse

It’s no surprise that Niagara Falls will be flooded with thousands of tourists hoping to catch a glimpse at the once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse. But if you’re someone who waited until the last minute to figure out your plans, you might be finding it a bit tricky.

Many events across the region are completely sold out as people eagerly await the phenomenon. But don’t worry, we’ve gathered a list of a few places you can head out to this April 8.

The solar eclipse is expected to start at 2:04 p.m. and last about two and a half hours. The sun will be fully eclipsed at approximately 3:20 to 3:23 p.m.

(Just a reminder that things are selling out QUICKLY. All events posted in this article still had tickets available at the time of publication. We will delete events as they continue to sell out – but you still might beat us to it.)
