The winter solstice marks the gentle shift of our planet’s eternal relationship with the sun. This dance of sun and earth has inspired celebrations of the human spirit, expressed through art and music, throughout the ages. Our own Winter Solstice Lantern Festival illuminates the darkest night with a multicultural array of lanterns, fire, singing, dancing, music and story telling. Please join us and add your special light to the longest night!
