Mark the shortest day and longest night of the year at ASI with our popular Winter Solstice Celebration. Since pagan days, solstice has traditionally meant the “year as reborn,” with ancient (and modern) Scandinavians fusing it into the longer “Jul” or Yule season. ASI celebrates this powerful seasonal juncture with fun, festivity and performance. This year, our friends at North Mallow will be slinging their unique s’mores and cocoa to enjoy by the fire and, back by popular demand, reindeer will make another appearance in the courtyard.

FIKA Café will serve a special festival menu with small plates and warm glögg (Swedish mulled wine). The ASI Museum Store and Jul Shop will also be open late for all of your last minute gift needs!

Advance registration is now required for Winter Solstice.
