Description

Join us for an OUT OF THIS WORLD celestial event! During the total solar eclipse, the Moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the Sun's light completely and casting a shadow on the Earth. This spectacular event can’t be observed everywhere, but Erie County is lucky enough to be one of the few locations in the WORLD to see this. The next total solar eclipse in the United States will not occur until 2044, and we will not be on the totality course until 2144. So, don’t miss the fun-filled day that Port Farms and Poverty Knob Farmhouse Ales have planned! Our location offers the PERFECT backdrop to view the eclipse with an unobstructed view!
