This Thursday: Meet Neighbors At The Hayes Valley Summer Solstice Party

By Nuala Sawyer - Published on June 20, 2016.

Each week, we'll feature an especially interesting event in the neighborhood based on the event submissions we get, and what we hear about while we're out on the beat. If you want to be considered for next week, please submit your event here.

The peak of long days is upon us, and starting this week, the sun will slowly be setting a little bit earlier each evening. Make the most of it still being light out until 8:30pm, and come meet your neighbors at a Summer Solstice Party taking place this Thursday in Hayes Valley Art Works.

Starting at 6:30pm, the temporary arts pop-up at Parcel O will open its gates to the neighborhood, serving doughnuts from the forthcoming Johnny Doughnuts and wine from Fig & Thistle.  

The celebration will occur in place of this month's Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association meeting, but if you have questions or concerns, many members will be in attendance, as will SFPD officers from Northern Station.

The party will also be an opportunity to see the inaugural art show in the space: New Quarters. Featuring the work of over a dozen artists, the show examines the relationship between raw nature, such as Parcel O, next to the rampant construction that's occurring throughout Hayes Valley.

The whole event will run from 6:30-8:30pm this Thursday, at the corner of Fell and Laguna. Attendees are asked to RSVP to ensure there are enough snacks for everyone. 

Here are some more events happening around the neighborhood this week:
