The 2023 Nelsonville Music Festival (NMF23) is around the corner, and Columbus Calling will be there.  The festival will take place the Weekend of July 21-23rd. This will be the second year for the festival at the Snow Fork Event Center in Nelsonville Ohio. Snow Fork Event Center is set in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio and is surrounded by the Wayne National Forest. The laid back, family-friendly weekend offers a carefully curated, diverse lineup of national, regional, and local acts in an intimate setting.

The festival is a production of Stuart’s Opera House, a historic non-profit theater in Nelsonville that presents live music, theater, educational programming and community building. All proceeds directly support Stuart’s Opera House including their tuition-free Arts Education Programs. Learn More about Stuarts by visiting
