Watch our volunteer Lock Tenders operate the historic Erie Canal Flight of Five Locks. The Lockport community, with the support of the New York State Canal Corporation, is pursuing a strategy to rehabilitate the Erie Canal Flight of Five Locks and return them to operating condition. Rehabilitation of Locks 69 & 70 was completed in 2014, and rehabilitation of Lock 68 was completed in 2019. For the 2024 season, demonstrations of the reconstructed Flight of Five, including locking through our Durham-style vessel, the “Erie Traveler", are offered free of charge to the public every Saturday, beginning June 29 from 11 am - 1 pm through September 28.
Enjoy Niagara County's farm fresh produce as well as countless artisan crafts and collectibles by shopping at the Lockport Community Farmers Market every Saturday during the summer months from 9 am - 2 pm on Canal Street next to the Lockport Locks. The market is a great stop either before or after viewing the Locks Demonstrations.
