Make a difference

Mankato Solstice Outdoor Music Festival is traditionally an annual event used as a fundraiser where the proceeds are donated to local charities. In April 2023, the then current organizers handed the torch to us, Circle the Earth Recreation Organization (CERO). We are a nonprofit in Mankato that started in January 2023. We were honored to be offered the opportunity to take over Solstice and pulled off 2023's Solstice in June and are excited for 2024's.

We are so excited to have Mankato Solstice Music Festival back at Land of Memories in 2024! Camping will be available. We will post it when you can purchase a spot; first come, first serve at that time.  


Our nonprofit is focused on bringing recreational opportunities to the Mankato area, especially outdoor opportunities, and we focus on using recreation for positive mental health. Some of the things we are currently working on are a free outdoor public skatepark, more groomed cross country ski trails, more mountain bike trails, and someday a river wave park, to name a few. We are also who does Nordic Exposure events, which are guided sauna and cold bath cycles that have countless physical and mental health benefits.


We will continue to keep Solstice alive with all proceeds going directly to our nonprofit. Check out our website or on Facebook to keep up with our organization. Thank you for your support!
