Solar Eclipse at Blue Sky Vineyards

Looks like this event has already taken place.


3150 S Rocky Comfort Rd, Makanda, IL 62958

Blue Sky Vineyard is perfectly positioned along the path of the 2024 eclipse with scenic views of our vineyard, open skies above and surrounded by rolling hills of the Shawnee National Forest.

Join us at the Eclipse Crossroads for the second total solar eclipse at Blue Sky Vineyard.  On Monday, April 8, 2024, southern Illinois will witness the second total eclipse of the sun and Blue Sky Vineyard, once again, is located within the path of totality. Did you know that Blue Sky Vineyard was NASA’s Point of Longest Duration for the 2017 eclipse? We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the 2017 event with so many wonderful guests and are now planning our 2024 experience.

Truly a one, wait, two-of-a-kind experience we want to encourage you to share it with us.  We are looking forward to seeing many new and returning faces during this event. We will be well staffed and ready for you at the winery but please keep in mind that this is a phenomenal event to be reoccurring in southern Illinois and Blue Sky Vineyard.
