SOLD OUT 2019 Winter Solstice Celebration

Friday, December 20, 2019 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm

We’re looking forward to welcoming ticketholders to ASI’s sold-out Winter Solstice Celebration tonight! Thanks in advance, especially to those who weren’t able to get tickets, for understanding the switch to advance ticketing. Solstice has always been a very popular event at ASI, sometimes stretching our capacity. So we wanted to make sure we could better plan for space, food and activity so that all guests would have an enjoyable evening. At this point, there is a wait list, but it is long. There will not be tickets available to sell at the door.

We invite you to visit for other upcoming ASI holiday events, including the Julglädje (Christmas Joy) - Family Performances at 1 p.m. on both December 27 & 28. We also have the final Making Traditions on Sunday, December 22, featuring Music in the Mansion by Celtic musician Laura McKenzie from 2-3 p.m. and Family Crafts from 1-3 p.m.


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.

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