2017 Eclipse Viewing Parties in Utah

August 14, 2017

One week from today on August 21st, the United States will experience the first total solar eclipse since 1979! Salt Lake City will not see a total solar eclipse but will experience a 90% solar eclipse which will still provide an amazing experience. (Check out this map from timeanddate.com and enter your zip code for detailed information about what amount of the eclipse you will see and exactly what time it will occur in your neighborhood.) 

If you are interested in viewing the eclipse right here at home, as opposed to driving the Idaho or Wyoming where it is anticipated that millions of people will flock next weekend to see the eclipse in totality, we have made a list of places that will be holding viewing parties here in the beehive state.

*Please note, most of these viewing parties are free but some are not. Please verify with the individual event. Eclipse viewing glasses are an absolute necessity. Do not view the eclipse without purchasing ISO approved eclipse glasses and keep them on during the whole eclipse.
