2017 Solar Eclipse Event

There are endless places to watch the 2017 Solar Eclipse in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory as the "path of totality" for viewing the total Solar Eclipse runs through several of our communities’ skies. Many of these viewing parties have fun-filled activities for friends and families to partake in as they await the arrival of Monday, August 21, 10:17 a.m. We strongly suggest that you secure a place to stay in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory for the entire weekend (Saturday, August 19 – Monday, August 21) to avoid the rush on the roads Monday morning and enjoy the show. Check out special lodging options and activities offered by our partners in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory.
