December 21st, the Winter Solstice, is an astronomical phenomenon marking the shortest day and the longest night of the year when, often considered the “extreme of winter.” Worldwide, interpretation of the event varies across cultures. Many come together to recognize rebirth involving holidays, festivals, gatherings, rituals, and more.
In Jackson Hole, annual festivities are held at Rendezvous Park. Bring your family and friends anytime between from 5–8 pm. It will be a magical night not to miss! Please RSVP to Park Director Elisabeth Rohrbach at firstname.lastname@example.org or (307) 733-3913.
This year, Cathedral Voices Choir will sing carols around a bonfire and Wyoming Stargazing will show you the planets up close with their telescopes. Jackson Hole Public Art will create art installations with fire that provide light and warmth. There will also be warm drinks, chili, and of course sledding!
