Childrens' Day


December 21 / 5:30 PM - December 21 / 7:00 PM

All are welcome to come celebrate the child in all of us and celebrate the changing of seasons. You don't need a child "escort" to attend this family celebration!


At the Winter Solstice, the Shambhala Community celebrates Children's Day to honor our children and to bring warmth, light and cheerfulness into the dark time of the year. Children's Day provides a special opportunity to express appreciation for and with our children. At a time when the weather begins to bear down upon us, we turn to family for celebration, creativity, and generosity. Because the solstice marks the time of year when the night is longest and daylight has waned, celebrating light is a special characteristic of this holiday. Celebration of the winter solstice has its roots in many different cultures. Founded on the vision of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the Shambhala Community has drawn on traditional images associated with this time of year to create a distinctive and rich festival of our own. 


The evening includes a variety of activities for families.  Light refreshments.


A suggested donation of $10 per family will be gladly received at the door to cover basic expenses.
