Here’s part of the description from Eventbrite:

"The third annual Solstice Gala will be a fully immersive experience of separation from the outside world. A veritable artistic landscape, we'll feature music, spoken word performances, and visual art installations curated to create a space of reflection and rejuvenation, set apart from the overstimulating world around us."

There will be Solstice-themed cocktails, beer and wine available.

The event takes place at Catapult Creative, 10 N. Ludlow St. Guests are asked to enter through the Courthouse Square side (there is a Dayton Inspires mural on the door).
