Winter Solstice Bonfire

December 20 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

This year’s Winter Solstice Bonfire will be held at a new location, the Lucy Winton Bell Athletic Fields. We’ll have a warming tent, hot cider and cookies, guided night hikes and, as is customary in many cultures across the world, storytelling.

For the second year, Belwin is welcoming Ikidowin Youth Acting Ensemble, a theater program for Ikidowin youth ages 12-18.

At 7:00 p.m., the young storytellers will share their own spoken word pieces, appropriate for listeners of all ages. “Inviting the Ikidowin Youth Acting Ensemble to perform at the Belwin Winter Solstice Bonfire helps uplift our mission to share Native stories, promote our culture, and provide education with the surrounding communities,” says Curtis Kirby, director of the Ikidowin Acting Ensemble. “By allowing a platform, Native youth have unique opportunities to share accurate representations of Indigenous peoples.”

Cost is $10/car. Cash or check only. No credit cards accepted.

Please note: No dogs allowed at this or any Belwin event.
