Celebrate the Summer Solstice at Ascend Festival : 2:30 p.m. to sundown on June 22

May 29, 2019 01:53PM

Dockside Park, located on the banks of the Hudson River in Cold Springs, will be the gathering spot for the Ascend Summer Solstice Celebration II, which will feature “yoga, music, art, wellness, food, drink and play” from 2:30 p.m. to sundown on June 22, the longest day of the year.

“Each year Ascend dedicates the summer solstice event to one of the seven chakras,” says the festival’s creator, Melia Marzollo. “Last year was the year of the root chakra, and the focus was getting rooted in this new event cycle, honoring and connecting with ancestors. This year’s festival, Chakra Two, is defined by the sacral chakra and expressed as the lover in the Ascend system. The theme is love, and we’ve planned an extra-special lineup of yogis, musicians, artisans and crafters to help us celebrate the lover in each of us and charge it up under the solstice sun.”

The best place to park for the event is the Cold Spring Metro North Commuter Lot, which is free on Saturdays.

Location: Dockside Park, 34 West St., Cold Spring, NY. For tickets and info, visit AscendFestival.com.
