About the event

Soltice Festival

Join us Saturday, June 24th from 11am – 3pm for our first annual  Solstice Festival celebrating the summer season! Enjoy live performances  with a kids concert by musician Miranda Currie, and don’t miss the  headlining performance Branche – Acting For Climate, an interactive  performance art group! Check out our artisan vendors and the farm stand  by our Garden Team as we celebrate our first harvest of the season. Hit  up our food station or Into The Blue pizza truck for lunch, then visit  the hard lemonade stand for a seasonal treat (or just a refreshing  mocktail!). Explore our children’s activities (Activity Passport  required, information below) and of course check out what’s new and  fresh at the Food Hub!

Activity Passport $10/passport

The performances, pony selfies, and vendors are all admission by  donation, but children activities require an Activity Passport. Activity  Passports include the following activities, including admission and  supplies:

  • Nature Scramble – a scavenger hunt worksheet that uses clues around  the event area to unscramble a secret message and win a prize (a tree  sapling you can take home and plant!)
  • Local Taste Sesnsations – a garden experience where you can taste the flavours grown in our own garden
  • Planting Station – create a paper pot and plant a sunflower seed to  take home, plus one to plant in the sunflower maze at Abbey Gardens!
  • Craft Station – learn how to make a wildflower seed bomb, one to take home and one to launch in the Little Pit at 2:30pm!

Activity Passports are available for purchase here:
