Overview

The summer solstice arrives in Roxborough every June, as it has for generations. And every June, we celebrate. And when we say celebrate, we mean it—food trucks, a beer garden, arts and crafts, lively performances, friends, food, and music with roots in hundreds of cities around the world.
