About this event

Miami ACX is hosting our first Winter Secular Solstice, celebrating humanity’s achievements. The event will be similar to the annual traditions in the Bay Area and NYC – except adapted to the spirit and community of South Florida. It will involve sharing food, storytelling, singing, bonfire and (optional) overnight camping.

Winter Secular Solstice reflects on the past and how far we’ve come as a human species, while also looking forward, assessing our connection to future generations. We intentionally include elements found in other holiday season traditions (food, song, light), as we acknowledge the power and purpose they serve in bringing us together, and reminding us of the ideas we hold in common.

All are welcome to participate. We have rented out a large, private campground for the event, with plenty of open space to stay overnight. While the evening portion is scheduled to run 4-9pm, it’s likely we will host daytime activities in a different area of Markham Park. We will email those details to all registrants as it gets closer.

Since this is a new event for South Florida, we have written out a lengthy list of common FAQs. Feel free to email us at miamiACX@gmail.com with additional questions.
