Captain's ball logo

The Canal Boat Captain's Ball is the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition's annual gala fundraiser, in which we honor the year's Canal Boat Captain, a member of the community who has dedicated tremendous time and resources to the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area. The event raises more than $40,000 for the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail each year. This year, it includes a virtual auction, raffle prizes, and a Fund-A-Need which raises separate funds for the annual Fishing Derby.
