Summer Solstice activities in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Midnight Sun Baseball Game
This was the 113th year for the summer solstice baseball game here in Fairbanks. It starts at 10pm so it’ll run past midnight. And they never use the lights. This year was a little darker than it would normally be because of cloud cover. If you’re up here for the solstice, you should definitely check it out.
We love a vegan potluck and Kevin found a group on Facebook that does them here in Fairbanks And there was one scheduled for the time we were here so of course, we went! The food was all delicious and the company was awesome!
So if you’re going to be in an area for a while, search Facebook and you might find one there.
Midnight Sun Festival
The Sunday closest to the solstice, the Midnight Sun Festival takes over downtown Fairbanks. They had live music, dancing, food, art, women’s wrestling and more.
