2019 Soo Locks Engineers Day

Annual Events
09:00 AM To 04:00 PM
Location: Soo Locks Park
The perfect itinerary of family-friendly activities awaits you during Engineer’s Weekend in Sault Ste. Marie. The last weekend in June has something for everyone: spectacular vistas, unbridled power, and so much more. Best of all, it’s your once-per-year chance to sneak a peek behind the scenes at the Soo Locks. It’s the event that started it all – the one day when you can walk across the mighty Soo Locks walls and explore the buildings and special exhibits open only on this day – the last Friday in June. Engineer’s Day festivities are held from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The gates are open to allow visitors to explore on their own self-guided tours across the Locks and into historically important structures (Davis Building and the Administration Building) used solely for the work of one of the world’s busiest lock systems.
