View the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse in Perry County

Witness the beauty and wonder of the cosmos. On April 8, 2024, Perry County Missouri will be in the path of a total solar eclipse, offering a unique and breathtaking experience for residents and visitors alike.

As the moon passes between the sun and the earth, it will block out the sun’s light, casting a shadow over the earth. This will create a surreal experience, with the sky darkening as if it were night, and the sun’s outer atmosphere becoming visible.

Perry County is the perfect place to witness this amazing event, with multiple viewing sites featuring unobstructed views and out-of-this-world themed festivities, like hands on science demonstrations, balloon launches, and our 3-day SolarFest featuring live entertainment, food venders, and even a parade. No matter if you’re an experienced astronomer or just looking to experience this awe-inspiring natural phenomenon, Perry County offers up a star studded experience.

Protect your eyes with authentic solar glasses!

Visit the Perryville Welcome Center to purchase certified solar glasses ($2), made by the top solar viewing manufacturer in the US. (508 N. Main St. Perryville MO 63775)
