2024 Total Eclipse

Eclipse Social Media Graphic

The City of Perrysburg will be within the band of totality, making it a great location to witness the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024. Perrysburg is expected to experience around three minutes of darkness. The last time Ohio saw a total solar eclipse was in 1806. The next total solar eclipse in Ohio will occur in 2099! Because of this, state planners anticipate an influx of travelers to and through Wood County on the day of the eclipse. We have set up this page to communicate information to the public. Please check back as we are regularly updating this page.

We want everyone to be able to enjoy this once in a lifetime event safely. We also have links to other helpful resources.
