Feast of the Winter Solstice – Saturday December 22 6 pm
The Feast of the Winter Solstice is a spectacular annual gathering for members of the Fremont Arts Council and their invited guests. Together in the Great Hall we mark the season with shared dishes, lavish costumes and artful celebration. The Feast is created by the revelers themselves! Building out the site for the Feast is an awesome experience where you get to know the community in a deeper way. There is something magical about taking an empty hall/space, decorating it to high beauty, and adding in all the components to throw an amazing community gathering. Event details ...
This year’s Feast will be a more intimate event than in years past. We are feasting in a beautiful venue, with only half the capacity of past feasts. Volunteers that SignUp! will have the first opportunity to purchase a very limited number of tickets. There will be no sales the day of the event. So get involved early!
Want to ensure your chance to purchase a ticket to Feast? Sign up to Volunteer! FAC members who sign up to volunteer for our Feast Workshops and for a shift the day of the Feast will be able to purchase tickets before tickets go on sale to the general membership. Already signed up? Please look again! We just added more shifts for day-of and other ways to help. Team leads – please Signup! so we know when you will be around.
Feast Call to Build Community Artwork
The Fremont Arts Council invites volunteers to the Powerhouse to create art, decor, headdresses, costumes and other aspects of the Feast of the Winter Solstice as we come together to engage in reflection, artistic expression and community. This year, we have the venue beginning at 7:30 AM the morning of Feast. We only have 9 hours to load in/setup Feast. We will have less time to breakdown/load out/cleanup. Our art must be exquisite yet movable!!! Details …
