We are thrilled to announce the most celestial event of the decade, the Great American Eclipse, taking place at the Dallas Arboretum on April 8, 2024! This extraordinary event will feature a Total Solar Eclipse, where the moon will completely obscure the sun for nearly 4.5 minutes, beginning at 12:30 pm. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness this breathtaking phenomenon, and we have a stellar lineup of partners and activities to make it an unforgettable experience.

When you reserve your tickets, don’t forget to add on your eclipse viewing glasses, so you can safely marvel at this awe-inspiring event.
