Join us for a grand kick off to summer with Casper’s Summer Solar Festival celebrating the science of the sun, the beauty and fun of our outdoor resources, and the value of our Casper community!
Our second annual Solabration is brought to you in partnership with The Table & Beyond Borders Yoga.

We cannot bring the Eclipse back this year: BUT! We can celebrate the Summer Solstice! We invite you to an unforgettable family-friendly festival on the North Platte River, suitable for all ages who love science, nature & community.

This will be the perfect summer day to chill with friends and family. Come savor one of the longest days of the year to the incredible backdrop of The North Platte and Casper Mountain.

The Table’s WHY:
At The Table we nourish the spiritually hungry, believing there is always room for one more around this table.

HOW we do this is by:
— Valuing belonging over believing exactly the same
— Welcoming doubters + disciples together
— Asking good questions, seeking good answers, taking action for the greater good

WHAT we do:
The Table is a dinner church that nourishes the spiritually hungry by asking good questions, seeking good answers and joining forces for good in Casper and beyond.
As a Studio of Love we practice compassion so that it becomes muscle memory, our automatic response.
