Celebrate the Eclipse at Seneca Allegany Resort

Casino with waterfall

Seneca Resorts & Casinos will be the place to be on Monday, April 8 when Western New York is in the direct path of a rare total solar eclipse, a celestial event that hasn’t occurred in the area in close to a century and will not happen again for another 120 years. The Seneca Resort & Casino has planned a special community event open to the public to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event. 

The Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca will host outdoor community events open to all ages from 2 PM to 5 PM. The event will feature food trucks, outdoor games, live entertainment and more.

“The eclipse is going to be the event of a lifetime, and we want to celebrate with the Western New York community and those visiting from around the world in a way none of us will forget,” Seneca Gaming Corporation President & CEO Kevin Nephew said. “From Niagara Falls to Buffalo to Salamanca, we’ll have something that everyone can enjoy as we all take in something we won’t see happen again until 2144.” the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino celebration will be located in the large rear parking lot of the casino.

A cash bar will be available for guests 21 and older at each event. Lawn chairs are encouraged for comfortable seating, and guests are encouraged to dress accordingly for the weather, as all the eclipse-related activities will be outside. 

The first 200 guests will receive a commemorative eclipse t-shirt, and a limited number of commemorative viewing glasses will be available at each location while supplies last.

“Fun and excitement is what we deliver at Seneca Resorts & Casinos and that’s what guests attending our eclipse viewing parties can expect,” said Melissa Free, Chief Marketing Officer, Seneca Gaming Corporation. “We welcome our neighbors in the community as well as those visiting the area for this occasion to share this once-in-a-generation moment with us.”
