Summer Solstice Showcase 2017

June 21, 2017 | 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Summer Solstice Showcase at the Rock County Historical Society

View, Bid, Celebrate …

Spend the first evening of summer at the fashionable Summer Solstice Showcase! You’ll see one-of-a-kind clothing created by local designers and inspired by historic garments. Newly created fashions will be modeled live and showcased next to each historic piece that inspired it. Bid on the new garments or simply enjoy the fashions! Cocktails and food stations featuring dishes prepared by five local chefs round out the fun at this first-of-its-kind event.

It’s a White Party!

What better way to mark the start of summer than a white party? Casual cocktail attire, with a white flair, is encouraged!
