The annual Erie Canalway calendars are available at many libraries and welcome centers throughout the canal system, including Hoag Library in Albion, Community Free library in Holley and Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina .

The calendars also are available for free at the nearby Royalton Hartland Community Library in Middleport, Seymour Library in Brockport and Brockport Welcome Center.

The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor is distributing 19,500 of calendars throughout canal communities. The calendar features winning images from this year’s Erie Canalway photo contest.

“The calendar showcases the unique beauty, history, and character of New York’s canals and canal communities,” said Bob Radliff, Erie Canalway Executive Director. “We hope it inspires people to preserve and celebrate our incredible canal heritage.”

Calendars will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, thanks to generous sponsorship by the NYS Canal Corporation.

“The 2022 calendar celebrates our iconic Canal System by displaying brilliant photographs as captured by many of our canalside neighbors, and I encourage everyone to retrieve one while supplies last, so that they too can enjoy these spectacular scenes all year long,” said Brian U. Stratton, director of New York State Canal Corporation.
