Milton Keynes City Council is holding the city’s first ever, family-friendly Midsummer Festival, where we invite you to celebrate the summer solstice with a fun-packed free programme of music, maypoles, magic and more.

Famously, Midsummer Boulevard is aligned with the path of the sun at summer solstice, which in traditional folklore is celebrated on the night of 23 June. On Sunday 23 June from 10am to 10.30pm, Midsummer Boulevard East will be transformed into Festival central for a free event inspired by traditional midsummer themes of renewal, healing, and health.

Music, street theatre, and folklore-inspired art will take place alongside free making workshops. Fantastic pop-up street food curated by Sophie etc will be available throughout the day and into the evening. The event ends with a parade to the Light Pyramid in Campbell Park.
