Attendance is by ticket only. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come basis.
Park After Dark is the only event of its kind to be held within the grounds of the C&O Canal National Historical Park. Guests will enjoy the natural splendor of the Great Falls area and the historic Tavern, while learning more about the Trust and the Canal itself.
This year, we will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas’s walk that helped to preserve the Canal. Lively music by Trouble Brewin’, hearty chili with delicious accompaniments, delectable desserts, unique auction items, a visit from the Canal’s mules, and a roaring bonfire will punctuate the evening.
The evening’s highlight will be the presentation of the Trust’s 2014 William O. Douglas Stewardship Award to Richard E. Marriott, Chairman of the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation.
The attire for the evening is “Towpath Chic.”
