COVID-19 has changed the way we do everything – including festivals and special events. Many events have been cancelled this summer and fall, but how will large gatherings and festivals look in the future? What are the safety precautions for COVID-19 events and post-COVID? How do we do events virtually? And how do we use these lessons to make improvements to community gatherings? Join Liz Parham, Director, and Lee Padrick, Chief Planner, both with the NC Main Street & Rural Planning Center, for a conversation with three festival coordinators to discuss what they see as challenges, opportunities and new ways to bring communities together during a pandemic.
