Winter Solstice Celebration

December 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm



The Winter Solstice marks the beginning of the winter season in the NorthernHemisphere, with December 21st the longest night of the year. This astronomical event is significant to many cultures, religions, and traditions, for many different reasons.

The WINTER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION will take place on Thursday, December 21st at 5 pm around the fountain in the Village. After a gathering time, those who are willing and able will walk through the village and around the pond lighting up the winter sky with their creations.

Our Village event is a non-denominational winter-themed event. We hope you will bring a handmade lantern to light up the night.  No flames or glass allowed!

RAIN DATE:  12/22

Try your hand at making a lantern or just bring a flashlight or an LED tea light. If you are making a lantern on your own, please choose natural, organic LED colors, within the winter or star-colored spectrum. See this Youtube link on how to make a simple lantern or you can buy a paper lantern here.
