Grove of the Rising Phoenix is delighted to participate in the Irish Cultural Center’s annual Winter Solstice celebration once again this year!
The evening will have a short parade, remembrances of the fallen, a Druidic Ritual celebrating the Solstice as in days of old, kid’s story-time, a presentation on Newgrange, music and merriment from Celtica and De Mairt Ceol, and handmade items from the Celtic Crafters available for sale.
Solstice marks the longest night of the year when the sun is at its lowest elevation in the sky. The return of the sun from its most southern position on the horizon has always been of great ceremonial significance, in addition to serving as a celestial clock. Here in Phoenix the annual winter solstice begins at 5:15 with poetry, music and crafts.
Food and both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
Adult Tickets (13 & up): $5.00
Kids 12 & Under are Free
