As in the past, most daytime Festival events will take place in downtown Nelson within easy walking distance of local stores and restaurants. This year the Nelson & District Rod & Gun Club (see map) will be our main indoor venue, next to the exuberantly gushing Cottonwood Falls Park with its beautiful garden thanks to the Izushi Friendship Society.
Some evening events will occur on rural properties just outside of town where it’s more comfortable to distance audience members, and to which wheeled transportation will be desirable. Check back for more detailed plans as they coalesce.
Once again we’re adhering to COVID-19 protection protocols including distancing, masking, and hand-cleaning. Some program items such as the Holley Rubinsky Memorial Blue Pencil Sessions will be conducted via online interactive video. Certain other program events can be attended virtually during the Festival by streaming video or watched after the Festival online.
