Hachie Eclipse of the Heart: Waxahachie Solar Eclipse 2024 Weekend
Where the Eclipse Comes for Fun!
April 6-8, 2024

It's time to make science history again . . . in the 90s, Waxahachie became internationally known as a science destination with the Superconducting Super Collider project . . . it was so cool that even Young Sheldon still talks about it today.

This time, Waxahachie, Texas USA will make science history and be a science destination by being located in the path of totality on April 8, 2024 . . . the total eclipse is going to be so cool that YOU will be talking about it 20 years later.

Join us for a 3-day weekend filled with science, live music, activities for the family and FUN throughout the community.

Railyard Park, downtown Waxahachie's amphitheater, will be your epicenter of fun with “Hachie Eclipse of the Heart” - a 3 day solarbration taking place April 6-8. Festivities begin on Saturday evening with a Here Comes the Sun party featuring Britishmania – a tribute to the Beatles. On Sunday evening, it’s the Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd laser light show followed by the Official Watch Party on Monday with DJ Alexx and Kevin Crouch of South Metro Weather.

Plus, we have many more community partners lining up great festivals and events to enjoy during your stay.
