Lights Out Brunch & Wine Tasting (2).png

Join Us to Celebrate the Great American Solar Eclipse 2017

When: 830am, AUGUST 21, 2017

Where: Joel Palmer House, Dayton, Oregon

The Joel Palmer House and Native Flora Winery invite you to celebrate the Great American Eclipse with us in the heart of Oregon Wine Country!

The total solar eclipse will reach Dayton, Oregon at about 10:15AM and exit the state at 10:27AM, so we have planned a celebratory brunch and wine tasting so you can observe and experience this beautiful event in style!

This event is an outdoor party in the Joel Palmer House's private garden located adjacent to the restaurant. Tickets include complimentary sparkling toast, tasting of Native Flora wines, logo wine glass, eclipse viewing glasses, classic buffet-style brunch, and a once in a lifetime total solar eclipse experience!

All About the Solar Eclipse

Mark your calendars now for Monday, August 21, 2017. That's the big day, when the sun will go dark, and Oregonians will witness a rare and spectacular sight. 

The eclipse is best viewed along what's called the "path of totality," a narrow band about 90 miles wide (see map) that stretches across the U.S., from Oregon to South Carolina. The total eclipse will last the longest - about two minutes - at the center of that path. In Oregon, it will cross near Salem, Corvallis, Madras, Baker City and several small towns in between. 

Located in Dayton, Oregon, the Joel Palmer House is in an ideal viewing location for this amazing natural event!

The eclipse will begin shortly after 10:15 a.m., changing slightly depending on where you view the event, on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017.

Unless you were around for 1979 eclipse, this will likely be your one and only opportunity to ever see a total solar eclipse in Oregon. The next one crosses our state on October 5, 2108, when a small sliver of the Oregon coast will experience the tail end of the event, and July 25, 2169, when the path of totality will include Portland and the northeast part of the state

Protect your eyes! While the eclipse's totality can be viewed with the naked eye, the rest of it should be viewed with some kind of eye protection. Remember that you'll be staring at the sun.

NASA recommends wearing glasses with a special filter (you can use number 14 welders glass or buy a cheap pair of special-made paper shades), or using a DIY pinhole projector.
