Thank to a big last-minute donation, the Nelsonville Music Festival at Robbins Crossing at Hocking College in Nelsonville is completely free today.
The non-profit festival organizer Stuart's Opera House announced this afternoon (June 9) that donors Kleinpenny Rentals and the OU Performing Arts and Concert Series made a donation to pay for the single-day ticket of anybody who comes through the festival's doors for the rest of the day. (Other donors were announced later: Ohio University Diversity & Inclusion (Black Student Cultural Programming Board - Multicultural Center), Ed and Darlene Stube, and an anonymous donor.)
"If you already purchased a Sunday ticket, thank you for supporting our year-round Arts Education programs!" NMF organizers wrote in a news release. "We love you!"
