Tuesdays, November 14 & 28, 10am-12pm at the Fearrington Cares Center. Registration Required.
In order to support our Lantern Walk on December 21 and just for fun, Fearrington Cares is holding workshops on lantern making. There is a $5 materials fee payable at the workshop. Call Fearrington Cares at 919-542-6877 to register. Limit 12 to a class.
Thursday, December 21, 5pm at the Village Fountain. Rain date Friday, December 22.
The Third Annual Winter Solstice Celebration in Fearrington Village will take place on the Winter Solstice (of course!). We will gather around the fountain in the Village to settle in with our lanterns placed on tables, around the fountain, or held in our laps. There will be quiet time for reflection and time to meet and greet and “ooh and ahh” over each others’ lanterns. Then those who are willing and able will walk through the village and around the pond lighting up the winter sky with their creations. We hope you will bring a handmade lantern to light up the night.
Winter Solstice marks the beginning of the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere, with December 21 being the longest night of the year. This astronomical event is significant to many cultures, religions, and traditions, for many different reasons. This secular, winter-themed event is sponsored by Fearrington Cares and the FHA.
