Cumberland Rec Centre
Presenting….. “The Return of the Ice Queen” featuring headliner OPIUO! With support from your friendly neighborhood Nakedjs, Wax Candy Visuals, Subliminal Sound, Aerial performances, Dance, Fire, & more….
Cumberland Village Works and Little Island Productions are right back at it after the hugely successful Atmosphere Gathering this past summer. Winter Solstice is an important time for everyone, so we spent some quality time preparing something extra special for everyone. We sincerely wish you all the best and invite you to join us as we welcome the light back on Dec 20.
We really wanted to make sure we could fit everyone in so we have expanded our Solstice celebrations to a much larger venue! Join us in costume as we turn the Cumberland Rec Centre into a frigid winter scene; journey with us on this longest night and help as we warm and melt away the cold.
