A total solar eclipse is rare. You probably won’t be alive when the next one falls over Oregon.

So it’s only natural to feel excited about this once-in-a-lifetime celestial occurrence. Because you’re not alone. Across the state, communities are hosting special events in honor of the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. And they’re celebrating in the most Oregon ways possible — with wine, music, history, science and the great outdoors. Take a look at some of the eclipse events scheduled to take place, and keep checking this page for updates as more events are posted.
