Festivals, Events, and the Pandemic Pivot

November 4, 2020 @ 9:00 am


This half-day virtual workshop, presented by Recreation Resources Service and NC State Tourism Extension will look at both sides of the story of festivals and events during the COVID pandemic. We’ll talk with folks in both parks and recreation, as well as tourism and community development. We want to hear their experiences; what has worked, what hasn’t – what can’t we wait for when we get back to normal, what we learned we should never have been doing in the first place; and, interestingly, we will discuss what has worked so well virtually, that we think we’ll incorporate into the event forever. We’ll also exchange views about what we foresee as long-term impacts for the future.
