☼ ☼ ☼ Nelson Solstice Party | Nelson Town Hall

New link

On Friday, December 30,

we’ll hold our postponed Annual Solstice Party

starting at 7:00 PM.



The Monadnock Folklore Society

brings this community event to the Nelson Town Hall each year.

Admission is $5.

This year the evening will begin with a holiday concert featuring a selection of traditional and original seasonal music performed by The Solstice Sisters (Alouette Iselin, Melanie Everard, Kim Wallach, & Heather Bower) and friends; as part of the concert we feature a performance by one or more of our Johnny Trombly Scholarship recipients. This year, due to COVID protocols, we will not be serving refreshments and THERE WILL BE NO DESSERT POTLUCK. We’ve altered our format this year in an attempt to keep everybody healthy during the holiday season. Various groups of unsavory characters presenting their idea of seasonal entertainment will not surprise us as they will be part of the scheduled entertainment and once they are on their way we can decide if there is enough interest and energy to complete the evening with a traditional New England contradance.

Attendance will be limited to 75 individuals

on a first come/first served basis.

Doors open at 6:30PM.

You should be able to view the live stream from the Monadnock Folklore Society Facebook page or our YouTube channel:
