About the Solstice Festival

The Solstice Festival in Manitowish Waters is for friends and families to enjoy our area trails and the beauty that surrounds us while promoting an active, healthy lifestyle.

The Solstice Festival is a first-class, family-friendly event that promotes Northwoods tourism through cycling, and new for 2024, trail running.

The annual Solstice Festival is one of the area's most anticipated, premier community events, offering a range of routes and activities, all planned around fun and the longest day of the year.

Event proceeds from the Solstice Festival support ongoing work toward equity, access and safety for Northwoods cyclists by proactively establishing a fleet of "adaptive" bicycles for public use.

Already, proceeds from the Solstice Festival allowed the Manitowish Water Alliance Foundation to purchase two adaptive bicycles for public use. Every little bit helps!

Join us in celebrating the beauty of the Northwoods.
