We look forward to welcoming our canal community to Park After Dark at the Historic Great Falls Tavern on Sunday, September 17, 2023—just one month from today! Park After Dark is the largest annual fundraising event to benefit the C&O Canal National Historical Park. It is a wonderful opportunity to come together, highlight the work of the C&O Canal Trust, and gain insight and vision for the future from Park and Trust leadership. There are a variety of ways to be part of Park After Dark.
We expect more than 200 guests for an evening of gourmet fare, libations, a campfire under the stars, and more! This year’s Park After Dark will feature a Fund-A-Need paddle raise to support the C&O Canal Trust’s outdoor education program, Canal For All. Tickets are $300 per person ($250 is tax-deductible).
Park After Dark sponsors are key to the success of the evening. We offer a variety of sponsorship levels and benefits, starting at $1,500. August 22 is the deadline for promotional inclusion. The final deadline is September 1.
Park After Dark is a large undertaking, and would not be possible without the help of our canal community volunteers. We are currently seeking volunteers to help with event setup, assistance during the event, and event clean-up.
