The schedule of events for 2021 is complete, but there is always the possibility that events need to be rescheduled. If you are interested in a particular event, we recommend you check this site the day before the event to see if there are any changes.
The majority of our events are outdoors, so we may not be subject to the same COVID restrictions indoor events may face.
We do not provide seating for events at Laxalt Plaza (south of the Carson Nugget), the Capital Amphitheater/Legislative Plaza area, the Silver Saddle Ranch, or the Bliss Mansion, so we encourage you to bring your own seating (e.g., lawn chair) to events at these locations.
We hold periodic Jazz & Beyond planning meetings on Zoom. If you wish to be involved, contact David Bugli at 775-883-4154. We are especially interested in volunteers to help us during events.
The Open Studios Tour was on Saturday & Sunday, Aug. 21 & 22, 2021. About 27 artists at 11 locations participated, and there was music at several of the artists’ studios and other locations.
