Eclipse Fest

Eclipse Fest

The first total solar eclipse exclusive to the United States since the country's independence in 1776 will happen in our area on August 21, 2017 — a great spectacle in the sky that shouldn't be missed if you are lucky enough to get the opportunity. Cashiers is in the path of the total solar eclipse and therefore you will get to view the daylight majesty of the Sun's corona in this path.

The Village Green will celebrate with Eclipse Fest, a community festival to celebrate this once in a lifetime event. Learn about this very rare phenomenon with subject matter experts and special viewing equipment at The Village Green Gazebo and Lawn. Featured entertainment includes a concert of feel good music by Coconut Groove at The Village Green Commons. Enjoy food and beverages from local vendors on site.

Total viewing time in Cashiers will be 2 minutes and 25 seconds. The partial phase starts at 1:07 p.m. and the Totality Phase starts at 2:36pm. For more information, contact us at info@villagegreencashiersnc.com or (828) 743-3434.

The Village Green needs your help to continue to sponsor events like Eclipse Fest. Please consider a donation on our GoFundMe page so that we may continue to bring you concerts, festivals and other entertainment.
