    Back by popular demand, the Summer Solstice Celebration will be held at the spectacular Greensboro Arboretum on Saturday, June 18, 2016 (RAIN OR SHINE). This is a family-friendly annual event that brings 8,000 triad citizens together on the longest day of the year. Don your faerie wings and glitter and meander through this Mid-Summer night’s dream.

    Face painting, musical performances hooping, drums and dancing will be showcased throughout the day beginning at 2pm. Don’t miss the Fire Finale beginning at 9pm where you will be surrounded by wide eyed children clutching their light wands and giving thanks to the abundance and beauty of nature.


    The Summer Solstice BAZAAR offers an eclectic array of merchandise and services that will delight the entire family. Beginning at 2pm, 100 local vendors will entice you into their faerie glens to dazzle you with their artistry, jewelry, clothing, and accoutrements of all kinds. Food and beverages will be available, so bring a blanket and picnic on the lawn. Treat yourself to a neck massage, get your glitter on and come play at this recherché market. Vendors may register for a 10×10 foot space for $100. (Non profits are $75) Funds raised from the Bazaar will pay for the Summer Solstice Celebration for an estimated 8,000 people.
