Celebrate the winter solstice at the Elizabeth Street Garden in Manhattan’s Little Italy on Sunday, December 20th. While this year’s event will be shorter and smaller than in the past, it will still be a joyous occasion to mark the shortest day of the year and welcome the return of light as days begin to grow longer again. There will be a collective bell ringing at 6:30 pm, so make sure to bring your own bell!

Due to the recent increase in rates of COVID-19, there will be no beverages or snacks served. All guests must wear a mask. Attendance is limited and will be given on a first come first serve basis.
