Winter Solstice Celebration & Forest Luminaria Walk

December 21, 2018

5:30-8:30 pm


Throughout time, people have come together to celebrate the shortest day of the year and welcome the lengthening days ahead. At Arcadia we also have a tradition—we gather for music and community unity.

We invite you to come celebrate with us on Friday, December 21, from 5:30-8:30 pm at the sanctuary! 

We'll have a small bonfire and a magical luminary trail through the winter woods (weather permitting). Our festive event also includes crafts for kids and live music.

Please bring a non-perishable item for the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. 

Registration not required.
