Celebrate the Maryland Science Center’s mission at the 46th annual Solstice fundraiser gala.

Each year, on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice, friends of the Science Center gather to recognize the important work that takes place each and every day at the Science Center and out in the community across the entire State of Maryland.


The 46th Annual Solstice will take place on Saturday, June 24, 2023.

Dress to impress and celebrate with science demonstrations, music, food and drink at our Solstice gala. Discover something new as our staff welcomes you with science demonstrations. Dance the night away to live music performed by The Adrian Duke Project in the lobby and DJ Rob Macy spinning records on the rooftop patio.  Mingle and explore in our three levels of hands-on interactive exhibits. Enjoy our signature cocktail and test tube shooters as well as bites from a variety of food stations. Don’t forget our ever popular Wine Pull.

Solstice is for ages 21+ only.


For over forty years all Maryland school students visiting on a field trip have received free admission to the Science Center’s exhibit halls.  All proceeds from Solstice help underwrite the free admission policy and help ensure that future generations of students will continue to visit for free on a field trip. Solstice is one night of scientific celebration but the mission of the Science Center is the reason we gather.

Thank you to our 2022 sponsors! For more information about Solstice sponsorship and other sponsorship opportunities, contact Marty Perreault at 410.545.5970 or mperreault@mdsci.org.
