Stakeholder Information

On April 8, 2024, Livingston County will be in the direct path of a total solar eclipse, which occurs when the moon completely covers the face of the sun, casting a shadow on the Earth. It will be the first total solar eclipse in the area in nearly 100 years. During the 2024 total solar eclipse, Livingston County will experience total darkness for several minutes, the longest of which will be 3 minutes 33 seconds in Caledonia, New York – making it an ideal travel destination for eclipse seekers.

With an estimated 350,000-500,000 visitors expected to travel to the Finger Lakes region for the eclipse, Livingston County communities and businesses have an opportunity to draw in residents and tourists.
