Advice about Inti Raymi in Ecuador this year

We had planned to fly home from our twelve-day Galapagos/Ecuador trip on June 21 but I just read that Inti Raymi is celebrated in Ecuador right about then. Are there festivities on the day of the solstice (June 21st) or do they start the next day (the 22nd)? If later, would it be worth staying another day or two to see this? Is Otavalo the best place to go or one of the smaller towns nearby? Since the solstice falls in the middle of the week this year, I wonder if most of the celebrating will be in conjunction with the Otavalo Saturday market the following weekend? Thanks for any information or advice you can give me!
