About the Event
A summer solstice is the moment in time when the Earth’s tilt towards the Sun is at its maximum and the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky.
In the Northern Hemisphere the day of the summer solstice is the longest day of the year (the day with the most daylight and the shortest night) and occurs every year between June 20 and June 22.
The summer solstice marks the end of spring and the beginning of summer in the hemisphere where it occurs and is one of four days (two equinoxes and two solstices) throughout the year on which a new season starts.
Join us for a fire and refreshments! Additionally, smaller wood piles will be available for purchase at $100 each, if you want a personal bonfire. And feel free to bring something to share! Whether it’s homemade food, music or even a poem about why you love the summertime, we’d love to see it.
Finally, remember to dress for the outdoors. Even though solstice is the official beginning of summer, there are still bugs, sparks and stinging plants to worry about. Have a fun summer!
