Summer Solstice Celebration NY Summary

Event Overview: Celebrate the longest day of the year at several NYC events commemorating the Summer Solstice Celebration NY. Enjoy family friendly NY Summer Solstice Festival events at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, or attempt to find peace in the busiest intersection in the world at the Solstice in Times Square Yoga Festival.    

What to Expect: Expect lots of sunshine and tons of free events at the Summer Solstice Celebration NY. Whether you're traveling with kids, looking for some relaxation, or even an NYC party, the NY Summer Solstice Festival has something for every mood.

  • Family Art Workshops: The Summer Solstice Celebration NY features free, kid-friendly art workshops at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens. Kids can get their face painted, and parents can lay out with a picnic or enjoy food from one of several local NYC vendors at the Summer Solstice Festival NYC.
  • Free Times Square Yoga: Beginning at 7:30am, some of the best yoga instructors from around NYC teach free classes all day from the "peace and tranquility" of none other than Times Square. This Summer Solstice Festival NYC tradition offers free yoga tutorials into the early evening, with the last class beginning at 6pm.

Inside Knowledge: Nobody celebrates the Summer Solstice - or Midsommar, as they call it - quite like the Swedes. The annual Swedish Midsummer Celebration in Battery Park takes place on the closest Friday to the Solstice, and features family-friendly NY activities including arts and crafts, music and more.

Event Hints:

  • Explore NYC: There are dozens of Summer Solstice NY Celebrations taking place throughout the streets of NYC every June - some organized, others spontaneous. For some adventurous midsummer fun, explore the streets of New York during the NY Summer Solstice Festival.
  • Free Kayak Rides: If you happen to be in Long Island for the Summer Solstice Celebration NY, drop by the Long Island City Community Boat House (46-01 5th St. Queens, NY 11101) for a free kayak ride.
