Total Solar Eclipse Weekend

Fort Henry Presents: The Eclipse Weekend

Join us on April 8, 2024, at Fort Henry National Historic Site, Eastern Ontario’s prime total eclipse destination for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as Kingston, Ontario is in the direct path of totality.

In a total solar eclipse, the moon will completely cover the sun, creating a celestial spectacle visible from our historic grounds. Immerse yourself in the science and wonder of this rare cosmic event that will last almost four minutes – one which only occurs every few hundred years. 

Stay tuned as we continue to finalize programming details.
