Summer Solstice Sunday at the Kimmel Center

Welcome the excitement of summer during the Kimmel Center’s Summer Solstice Celebration this Sunday June 19. Ancient civilizations worshiped the sun and appreciated its spiritual importance. Those traditions continue, thriving on beaches across the country. In modern-day Philadelphia that history will be remembered during a 15-hour family friendly mega-event celebrating music, art and life during the longest day of the year.

The Summer Solstice Celebration begins at 11am with a drum circle (don’t forget to bring your own drum). The all-ages entertainment includes face painting, live animals, music and dancing. There will be vendors selling food, drinks and wares throughout the event. When the sun sets for the day, the night is just heating up with a Bob & Barbara Drag Show, First Person Arts Story Slam, a fashion show by Sa Va boutique, tarot readings and a dance party until 2am under the lights of PIFA’s Eiffel Tower that will remain on display until the end of the year. Tickets are available for $10, for adults, $5, children under 5.
