Annular Solar Eclipse

Join us for the Spectacular Annular Solar Eclipse in Hanksville, UT!

Friday, 10/13 and Saturday, 10/14/2023

Nestled along the path of the annular solar eclipse, Hanksville Town offers an exceptional vantage point for experiencing this celestial phenomenon to the fullest. As the moon briefly obscures the sun, casting its radiant "ring of fire" upon us, Hanksville invites you to partake in a range of engaging activities. From live music and a sunrise 5K run to exploring local vendor booths showcasing crafts, delectable treats, and captivating artistry, our town promises a memorable experience. Come join us in this picturesque desert setting as we gather under the eclipse's shadow, making the most of its extended viewing opportunity.
