Racing Party at the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse

Racing Party at the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse

Fredericksburg, TX, March 18, 2024 — Kicking off the annual, multi-day event at the Foyt Winery & Museum in Fredericksburg, Texas, the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse launches the inaugural 36 hours of Foyt.

Named after A.J. Foyt’s dominating win at the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 36 Heures Du Foyt event will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at Foyt Winery & Museum, situated directly in the path of totality for the 2024 total solar eclipse.

Most people who have seen a total eclipse have described it as the most spectacular natural event they have ever witnessed. It starts as the moon slowly obscures more and more of the sun. As the eclipse deepens, the world around you takes on a strange tint, and shadows become sharp and detailed. When just a thin crescent of light can be seen through your eclipse glasses, daylight begins to fade, and rippling “shadow bands” might be seen on the ground. And then “totality,” as the soft wisps of the solar corona surround a huge hole where the sun used to be. You might notice a temperature drop and birds flying home to their nests. You’re standing in a strange twilight while a “sunset” glows all around you. Finally, totality ends, and the events occur in reverse order.

Interesting Facts:

– In April 2024, Central Texas will be in the direct path of a total solar eclipse for the first time in 146 years.

– According to, Foyt Winery is located in one of the best locations to view this eclipse.

– Another coast-to-coast eclipse will come to America in 2045, entering California and exiting through Florida.

The county forecasts an overwhelming influx of tourists for four days, causing all local resources to halt. Predictions include a complete gridlock, no water, food, cellular signal loss, and no emergency service response available. To mitigate these challenges, they decided to turn the eclipse into a 3-day luxury glamping trip.

For three days, guests will be pampered through incredible comfort, sights, sounds, and taste.

Arriving on Saturday and escorted to your luxury motor coach, all amenities await. Closed to the public, you’ll have free roam of Foyt Winery and Museum to take in the vibe that only the Texas Hill Country provides.

A prized local chef will be staying onsite to prepare an incredible menu of delectable meals daily, paired with all the ultra-premium Foyt wine you can drink. Live music will keep the party going while gaming areas throughout the property provide fun for your friends, new and old. Enjoy onsite golf tournaments while nightly dance parties and relaxing bonfires where acoustic storytelling sets by musicians help you wine down the day.
