Millions of Americans will see the sight of a lifetime on August 21, 2017, when a rare total solar eclipse sweeps the nation from Oregon to South Carolina. Day turns to night for two minutes and the sky's most beautiful spectacle, the Sun's corona, reveals itself in grandeur.

Gallatin, Tennessee, is right on that path for the longest duration of totality - approximately 2 minutes 40 seconds!

The spectacular event will include live music for all ages. Headlining the Encounter will be Kimberley Locke that gained fame with her participation in the 2003 American Idol® television series where she was second runner up. To learn more about Locke's successes and concert plans, click here. There will be exceptional food, eclectic programs that include Rommy Kirby's large yoga session beginning at 9:00 am, a children's play area, artisan and retail vendors on-site!

Free Admission. The Convention & Visitors Bureau will provide glasses while supplies last.

Buses should coordinate with the Convention & Visitors Bureau ahead of time. Viewing will primarily be on the soccer fields so bring your own chair and blanket.

Park Gates will open at 7:00 a.m.

Guests are expected to follow all Triple Creek Park Rules
