For the Kensington Market Winter Solstice Parade

TORONTO – Join us in preparation for the Solstice Parade by attending our annual Lantern Making Workshop a week prior to the lantern-lit procession through Toronto’s Kensington Market. Create a beautiful, personalized, glowing, hand-made lantern to celebrate the return of light on the longest, darkest night and bring it to the 24th Annual Kensington Market Winter Solstice Parade.

Toronto’s largest public art making event! Friday, December 13th from 6-10pm and Saturday, December 14th from 10am-5pm at the Steelworkers Hall – 25 Cecil Street.

Highly respected community artist Gabriella Caruso, Artistic Director of Red Pepper Spectacle Arts facilitates this popular workshop alongside a supportive team of experienced community artists. Materials and instruction provided.

A beautiful, fun activity for the entire family and friends of all ages. Absolutely all welcome to attend. Solstice Lantern Making is a not-for-profit, pay-what-you-can workshop. Suggested donation is $10 to help cover costs.

The Kensington Market Winter Solstice is a non-profit, accessible community-based event. Bring a drum, bang a pan, wear a costume, carry a lantern – this is a participatory event.

Handmade and commercial-free since 1987.
