The Cleveland Museum of Art's Summer Solstice Party

A whole bunch of us had sunch a good time at the  Cleveland Museum of Art at the Summer Solstice Party last year we had to do it again.  We wanted you to be the first to mark your calendar for this year's party - Saturday, June 25, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.  The evening will unfold across three time tiers with various ticket prices as we offered last year.  Enjoy performers from around the world who you'll only see here, strolls through the museum's world-renowned collection late into the night and the chance to be a part of the most amazing party held in Cleveland each year.

It was by far the best, and biggest, party I went to last year. The Bands were playing all night and most of us were dancing on the Museum's Lawn to well after 2am.

Its a great time.

Maybe not completely Cross-Cultural, but come on, a party at the Art Museum. It sort of counts.

It is my intention to buy my tickets for the 7:30 Entrance at this point.

7:30 p.m. admission

$60, museum members $40

  • 7:30 p.m. Group Doueh
    Making their first-ever tour of the U.S. from the desert lands of the Western Sahara, Group Doueh balances Afro-Saharan grooves with transcendental pop and blues elements.
  • 8:30 p.m. Chicha Libre
    Modern-day purveyors of Peru’s cumbia music, this group provides a dynamic and fun melding of African, Latin and South American cultures.
  • 9:45 p.m. Mucca Pazza
    Straight from Chicago, Mucca Pazza ushers in the later hours with their brilliantly crafted insanity, updating starchy marching band music with a strong dose of mayhem.
