You can join us at the official area viewing site in April at the Livingston County Fairgrounds in Caledonia. There, you’ll find campsites, parking spots, music, food, vendors and much more, for a celebration spectacular worthy of this rare, lifetime event.

Although we're hoping to have everyone join, for public safety purposes, when the Livingston County Fairgrounds has reached capacity, additional viewers will not be allowed to enter the area. We highly recommend reserving your tickets and/or parking spaces ahead of time or having multiple options if your first option is filled up.



If your eclipse viewing plans include a trek to LivCo (and we hope they do!), here’s what you need to know, as well as where to stay. We recommend booking your accommodations well in advance, as this event is sure to increase demand; for the best rates and most options, plan ahead.

Wherever you end up staying for LivCo Sol, be sure to plan ahead. Don’t just think you can arrive in the area and “figure it out when you get there.”

We expect demand and traffic to be exceedingly high during this special event, so be sure to stock up on supplies, cash, fuel, and food ahead of your arrival, in order to avoid long lines and limited supplies. If you’re traveling in an RV, be sure to have it serviced and fueled up ahead of your trip to LivCo. Keep your personal safety and security in mind.

Spotty Cell Service: As cell service may be spotty due to increased volume, create a communication plan with family members or fellow travelers that is not reliant on cell service.

Make a Group Plan: Consider having an out-of-area friend or family member that you can all check in with, if needed or separated. Likewise, if in a crowded area, pick a common gathering spot to meet up after separating.

Expect Traffic: Traffic will be heavy and lines for local services such as restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and retail stores may be longer than usual; allow for extra time to get where you need to go.

Keep Items Secure: As is the case when attending any crowded event, also be sure to keep valuables on your person (so not in your vehicles or left at a campsite) and secured.

Pack In, Pack Out: Lastly, as you pack up and head out, remember to keep our communities and public spaces clean and safe — pack it in, pack it out!
