Upcoming Event

Solstice Walks at Bloedel Reserve

Join us as we make the darkest days of the year a little brighter with a candle-lit walk through Bloedel Reserve

Imagine what deer, raccoon and owls will think when they see a parade of lanterns traipsing the trails…this magical event is one of Bloedel’s most popular events of the year!

Due to high demand and community feedback, we have added “Solstice Walks for Families” on Sunday 12/17 and Monday 12/18. These special walks are crafted for families with young kiddos who might enjoy voicing their excitement of spending the darkest days of the year in nature.

While children are permitted to attend the Solstice Walks on 12/19 & 12/20, we ask that parents please be mindful of the intended tranquil nature of these walks.

Solstice Walk for Families: December 17th & 18th
Solstice Walk: December 19th & 20th
Doors at 4:30pm; all walks will leave promptly at 5:30pm
