Annual Winter Solstice Celebration
Friday December 21, 2019, sunset
Gates open 4PM
Come be part of our annual Winter Solstice Celebration. Solstice marks the longest night of the year when the sun is at its lowest elevation in the sky. The return of the sun from its most southern position on the horizon has always been of great ceremonial significance, in addition to serving as a celestial clock. Here in Phoenix the annual winter solstice begins at 5:15 with poetry, music and crafts. The Grove of the Rising Phoenix will be performing a Druid ritual.
We will also have a special “Solstice Family Story Hour” for kids and will be reading The Longest Night by Marion Dane Bauer and The Winter Solstice by Ellen Jackson.
Food and both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be available to purchase.
Tickets are available at the door! Adults (13 & over) $5.00. Children (12 & Under): FREE
