#var:page_name# cover

Summer fun with amazing live music, friends, and incredible dancing! We create an environment of freedom to enjoy each other's company and incredible jazz. Join with us, no matter how long you've been dancing!

Summer Solstice is hosted at the new Sugar Swing Ballroom, which has AC, sprung hardwood floors, a perfect ambience, and lots of dance space. Summer Solstice, now in its 6th year, holds quite the reputation of being a favourite event among both new experienced lindy hoppers.

Highlights for this year? We are hand picking both out-of-town and local marquee swing musicians, along with local bands. As a sneak peak, we are delighted to announce guarist Josh Roberts is coming!

This year will have more focus on daytime activities, "strolling the ave" as we say. IN THE WORKS: live jazz outdoors at the Whyte Ave Gazebo! Coffee tour! Brewery/brew-pub tour! Nature walk & trolley rides! Window shopping in Old Strathcona! It will be the perfect platform for hanging out with old friends, and making new ones.

Last but not least, we are actually REDUCING the price to make it easier and more affordable for everyone to join us! We want to see everyone participate, especially students and out of town guests!
