Event description

Description

On August 21, 2017, the most amazing event in a generation will cross America, and Tryon, Nebraska is right in the heart of it! Totality of the Great American Eclipse will begin in Tryon at 12:53:04pm Central Time and will last for 2 minutes and 33 seconds! Because of our favorable weather conditions, dark skies and broad horizons, the Nebraska Sandhills have been named the #4 viewing site in all of America for this incredible event.

Tryon has scheduled activities on Sunday August 20 and Monday August 21 for visitors to totally immerse themselves in the ranching history and culture of the Nebraska Sandhills as well as experience the incredible total solar eclipse!
