Solstice Celebration at Aztalan State Park

307 days old

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Activities: Culture Study, Educational Programs, History, Outdoor activity
Location: Aztalan SP

Come to Aztalan State Park and celebrate the formal beginning of summer on the evening of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. The Friends of Aztalan State Park will host the annual Solstice celebration at the park beginning at 7 p.m. with snacks and beverages at the park shelter. A short program on the importance of the Sun to the Mississippian people who lived at Aztalan will precede the viewing of the sunset (weather permitting) from the southwest platform mound at the site that probably supported a structure where the leader of the community lived. The program is free but a Wisconsin State Park sticker (either day or annual) is needed and can be purchased at the park. For more information contact Friends of Aztalan Executive Director Bob Birmingham at 608-516-3421 or


Aztalan SP information

Aztalan State Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most important archaeological sites. It showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.
