December 21st, the Winter Solstice, is an astronomical phenomenon marking the shortest day and the longest night of the year, 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 [email protected] 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. There will also be a special seasonal glow installation provided by Jackson Hole Public Art.
There will also be warm drinks, chili, and of course sledding!
