Canal Days Celebration
Our one-day “Canal Days” event in early July has become a tradition. This is a fun, exciting, and safe way to observe our Pioneer heritage every year—with music, food, history, crafts and activities.
Take a canal boat ride aboard The Delphi. Visit the cabins in Pioneer Village. Trades people are hard at work, including the Broom Maker, Cooper, Blacksmith, weavers in the Loom House, Paper Maker and more. Our knowledgeable docents are in the historic cabins. Our one room School just might be in session too! Guided tours are available to see the beautiful Reed Case house, a restored 1844 home. The Canal Museum is in the Interpretive Center and gives visitors a true glimpse of what it took to plan, build, and operate the canal. Interactive exhibits make it fun for the entire family.
Let the Festivities Begin
The Canal Days event starts at 10 a.m. Boat rides will begin at 11 a.m., and festivities conclude at 4p.m. Feel free to look around at all the various attractions and join in with the various interactive activities and arts and crafts going on all over the park!
