Home  -  Events

18 Jun 2022

12:00 PM to 10:00 PM

The Newbridge Winter Solstice Festival is the biggest event in the Newbridge calendar, in the middle of winter, celebrating the shortest day of the year.

The streets are filled with medieval fun and games, English-style street market, Viking sword fight demonstrations as well as children’s sword fighting activities. There will be Belly Dancers in the streets and The Great Dane Magician.

A community bonfire kicks off on the Gladstone Green at the Newbridge Hotel for the burning of the wicker man. It is a tradition to throw a small wicker man into the fire to cleanse the energy and start anew as the days lengthen towards spring.
