On June 23 the Smithsonian will mark the first Saturday of summer—Solstice Saturday—by staying open late and hosting parties, programs, and performances. Smithsonian museums will be open until midnight welcoming visitors to the free festivities. 

Solstice Saturday is held in association with By the People, an international arts and dialogue festival taking place across Washington, D.C.
