Winter Solstice

This program is sold out. Please join us for one of our other festive activities. 

Mark the shortest day and longest night of the year at ASI with ASI’s popular Winter Solstice Celebration. 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!

This event will have half-hour timed entries to help with programming traffic flow. There are the 5:00 pm, 5:30 pm, 6:00 pm, and 6:30 pm slots. Please arrive at your selected slot, not before. Visit the Winter Solstice Festival page to get tickets now.


The Winter Solstice Celebration is presented by JE Dunn, with support from ASI’s members and donors. Minnesota artist activity is made possible by voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
