Stellar Summer Solstice Celebration Ideas

There’s a lot to love about early summer: balmy weather, outdoor gatherings, and, of course, plenty of natural beauty. As you make the most of this delightful season, you can also expect plenty of sunshine – and we’re not just talking midday. As the days grow longer, you get the unique chance to enjoy the great outdoors early in the morning or well into the evening.

The joy of ample sunlight reaches its peak during the summer solstice, when the sun’s path reaches as far north as possible. This is when maximum daylight can be expected. This also marks the official beginning of summer. Depending on the year, this milestone can arrive on June 20th or 21st – but for summer solstice 2024, the big day is June 20th.

Summer solstice is always a joy, but why not give this special occasion the festive flair it deserves? This is the perfect time to celebrate the beginning of a glorious summer: with an evening BBQ, sporting events, or an outdoorsy adventure. Check out these summer solstice celebration ideas and get ready to launch the new season in style.


Celebrate Summer Solstice With a Sun-Themed Backyard Party

Go all out with the summer solstice theme and plan a party like no other: a sunny bash that draws on bright and bold imagery to create a feel-good aesthetic while playing up the joy of a long summer day. 

Choose light bites and sunshine-themed drinks (like the classic tequila sunrise). Fruit salad, caprese, or veggie skewers are sure to satisfy. Otherwise, there’s nothing wrong with a classic backyard BBQ.

Also important: lawn games, which can bring summery vibes to any occasion. Cornhole, bocce ball, and badminton are all favorites worth adding to your 2024 summer solstice party plans. 

These games are a lot more exciting when you’re dressed comfortably for competition. With sporty, sophisticated, and sustainable options like the Cutter & Buck Daybreak Eco Recycled Womens V-neck Polo, it should be easy to feel comfortable in the sun while also looking stylish.

V-Neck Polo features:

  • Spandex and Recycled Polyester for lightweight, eco-conscious breathability.
  • Collared V-neck design for a hybrid casual yet dressy summer look.
  • UPF 50+ UV Sun Protection for warding off dangerous Solstice sun rays.

Get Up Early for a Beautiful Sunrise Hike

If you pride yourself on being the ultimate early bird, this is your chance to score the best sunrise views of the year. You can plan a short getaway or make the most of hiking paths in your hometown. Either way, you will want to wake up extra early so you can enjoy your morning coffee before you hit the trail. 

Start your hike around 5 am and you will have no trouble finding the most scenic spot in time for a spectacular sunrise. Bonus: if you tend to avoid physical activity in muggy weather, you’re in for a treat – the temperature should be plenty comfortable—crisp even—if you head out early in the morning. 

You will still want to dress the part, and, depending on the forecast, layers may be required. When in doubt, stick with long sleeves but make the most of breathable fabrics. This is when the soft and seasonless Roam Eco men’s jacket works wonders. 



Jacket features:

  • This jacket has a water-resistant finish that should keep you dry in the event of a surprise rain shower.
  • With Global Recycled Standard certification, you can feel confident you’re wearing an eco-friendly style.
  • Stretch rib delivers maximum range of motion for challenging hikes. 

Enjoy Some Summer Fishing-Rain or Shine

Summer fishing can be tricky. Unless you are willing to get up super early or stay out late, hot days may get in the way of landing bites. With summer solstice, however, you get an extra boost of motivation to fish during prime time. Head out bright and early with your fishing buddies and prepare for the best bites. 

Depending on where you go, mosquitos and a morning chill are possibilities. The solution: full coverage in a comfy jacket or shell to keep you warm during those cooler early morning hours. The wind-resistant and polyester-woven Discovery Hybrid womens jacket is perfect when misty summer morning fishing conditions take over: you’ll stay dry and cozy as you patiently wait for the best catch.

Hit the Links for a Solstice Golf Tournament

If your idea of summer fun involves your local golf course, plan the ultimate extravaganza for the summer solstice. Many locations host summer solstice tournaments and other special events. In general, golf courses offer generous hours during the summer, so it should not be difficult to score an early or later tee time.

To optimize your summer solstice golfing experience, go with a lightweight and breathable polo that will keep you comfortable throughout the day and into the night. The iconic Virtue Eco Pique Tile Print Men’s Golf Polo delivers a stretchy, ultra-breathable feel, thanks to its recycled polyester and spandex pique fabric blend. And with its lively yet sophisticated tile print design, this polo aligns with the festiveness of summer solstice, without trying too hard.
