Join the City of Ketchum in celebrating summer’s start! The Summer Solstice Soiree features family fun, food and live music.
The City of Ketchum is inviting residents and visitors to come on down to Town Square and celebrate as the longest day of the year gives way to our brilliant dark and starry skies.
The city’s first-ever Summer Solstice bash is planned for Thursday, June 21, from 5 to 9 p.m. The family-friendly event marking the start of the summer season includes a balloon clown, face painters, jugglers, magicians, henna artist and art activities designed just for kids (and maybe a grown up or two!)
Local food and beverage vendors will be serving it up with drink specials, and Nate Botsford and Band are booked to play a pair of 90-minute sets.
There will also be special programming to celebrate June as “Dark Sky Month,” as well as the city’s status as a Dark Sky Community and its inclusion in the nation’s first Dark Sky Reserve.
