Chenango Event

Erie Canal Premiere Party

Tourism Event

Event Description

Join us for the very first showing of WCNY’s Erie: The Canal That Made America – a new locally produced one-hour documentary.

Narrated by Emmy-award winning journalist David Muir, this documentary shares the story of how the conception and creation of the Erie Canal turned the United States, which was essentially a third world country at the start of the canal’s construction in 1817, into the richest nation in the world, and became a hub for economic transcendence.

Kick off the night by meeting the Erie producers, followed by a Q&A with Canal experts featured in the film. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The showing will begin at 7 p.m.

Appetizers and canal fare, including the popular drink of the day, Ginger Beer, will be served.

Also, look forward to a special video message from David Muir at the event!

Presale DVDs of Erie: The Canal That Made America will be available before and after the film.

$5/ticket discount for the Premiere Party, now through August 15.

*PLEASE NOTE: Seating is limited
RSVP by Sept. 5.
