2013 Winter Solstice Muir Woods Celebration | Marin

Celebrate the shortest day of the year with the tallest trees on earth. Come rain or shine, dress warmly, and celebrate Winter Solstice at Muir Woods from noon to 5 pm on December 21, 2013.

Muir Woods invites you to a new Winter Solstice program that celebrates the shortest day of the year instead of the longest night.

Winter Solstice in Muir Woods
Saturday, December 21, 2013 | Noon to 5 pm
Muir Woods Visitor Center, Marin
FREE (if walking in the woods, admission fee is $7)

Experience a Winter Wonderland of sights, sounds and fragrances with a day-lit walk among the giant trees.

2013 Schedule

  • 10:30 am to noon: Walk in the woods ($7) and learn the traditional English Morris dance
  • Noon to 4 pm (in the plaza): Make a Coho-ho hat, create a Solstice crown and wreath, special art project and storytelling. Seasonal music by Loosely Knits at the Visitor Center
  • Noon to 4 pm (in the woods – $7): Story with John Muir, Sounds of the Forest with Dan Dugan, and winter woods walk with a ranger
  • 4:30 pm: Light the Ceremonial Fire and Luminaria in front of the Visitor Center
  • 5 pm: Join rangers for a special song and program
  • 5:30 pm: Quietly say goodbye to the forest

Please note, this is a very small event; Muir Woods is not set up to handle huge crowds, and the amount of parking is woefully small. So if celebrating the winter solstice is a very important event to you, it might be worth the trip, but if you don’t like crowds or are just going on a whim, we recommend you think twice about making the trek as it’s likely to be too crowded to enjoy.
