For a time, it appeared like the Nelsonville Tunes Pageant would return to its often scheduled programming this June at Hocking Faculty soon after heading virtual in 2020 and joining forces with Duck Creek Log Jam in 2021 for a individual fall fest (Hocking Hills Tunes Pageant). 

As a substitute, 2022 will see two different music festivals in Nelsonville: In June, the new Black Diamond Tunes & Arts Festival will get place at Hocking College, which is creating the function, and the Nelsonville Songs Pageant, a creation of the nonprofit Stuart’s Opera Property, will return in a new location in September.

The highway primary to that level, even though, proved to be a bumpy a single, as described nowadays in the Athens Messenger. “On Aug. 9, 2021, NMF declared that it would depart the Hocking University campus for its 2022 event,” Dani Kington and Keri Johnson compose. “Later on, in Oct 2021, NMF introduced that it would be keeping its 2022 festival June 10–11. Nonetheless, months later on on Dec. 6, 2021, NMF altered its dates to Labor Working day weekend, Sept. 2–4.”
