Celebrate the C&O Canal at Park After Dark!  Park After Dark is the C&O Canal Trust’s annual gala fundraiser, held under the stars at Historic Great Falls Tavern. Each year, 300 guests enjoy great food, libations, a campfire, unique auction items, music, dancing, and more…all to benefit the C&O Canal National Historical Park!

We will be holding a Fund-A-Need paddle raise to raise money to help resurface the towpath. After years of use and heavy flood waters last year, the towpath needs our help!

Tickets are $250/person, or you can buy a full table of 8 for $2,000 and sit with your friends.

Please Note: This is a rain or shine event. In the unlikely event Park After Dark is cancelled due to severely inclement weather, the cost of your ticket will be considered a 100 percent tax-deductible donation to the C&O Canal Trust. Revenue raised at Park After Dark is critical to the Trust’s ability to support the C&O Canal National Historical Park.
