'A Bonsai Solstice': An annual community gathering around the beauty of illuminated bonsai
WHAT: The Pacific Bonsai Museum invites the public to bundle up, take in the outdoors and enjoy the serenity of our collection illuminated by the soft glow of holiday lights at our our 5th annual 'A Bonsai Solstice.' This event is the only time all year that we open the collection to the public at night.
Open to the greater community, this event is friendly to kids and families as well as those seeking peacefulness. Pacific Bonsai Museum Executive Director Kathy McCabe explains, “'A Bonsai Solstice' is a magical event that invites reflection. It is both deep and light-hearted, with a warm community feeling and a calm vibe.”
We invite the public to BYOF (Bring-Your-Own-Flashlight) to explore the bonsai by night. They can sip a cup of hot cocoa or coffee complements of Caffe d’Arte and enjoy a sweet or savory crepe from Crisp Creperie Food Truck. Live acoustic music will fill the woods with soft sounds and add to the magical atmosphere. A pop-up Night Market will sell nature- and bonsai-themed gifts.
Admission to the event and the Museum is free. (Donations to support the museum are always appreciated). For those who would like to take home a memento, commemorative mugs will be available with a $10 donation to the Museum.
EVENT SPONSOR: Caffé D’arte
