Happy New Year from Nevada County!

We made it! 2020 is now over and we can look forward to a (hopefully) less tumultuous 2021. We have missed our visitors this year, and can’t wait to welcome you back with open arms once this pandemic is under control.

Even though we aren’t having our typical slate of New Years Eve events, you can celebrate with us this evening from your couch.

The Gold Souls are bringing the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to you, at home, with a special New Year’s Eve broadcast From The Center. Visit thecenterforthearts.org to RSVP for free.  Tune in on Thursday, December 31, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. Pacific time, or watch the replay whenever you’re ready to bring a little funk to your New Year.

Center for the Arts will also be hosting a series of health and wellness related virtual talks from 4-5 p.m. every Sunday in January, 2021, to help you kick start your year. The first will take place this Sunday, Jan. 3, and feature Dr. Marc Helpern, founder and president of the California College of Ayurveda. Dr. Helpern introduces us to the traditional medicine of India and the oldest system of healthcare in the world. A system of both preventative and curative medicine. Learn more and get your tickets ($5 each, or free for members) HERE.

Or, if you didn’t get the perfect gift you wanted, or have some holiday money you want to spend on something unique, consider supporting one of our local unique shops by buying online. Here is a summary of how to find some great online shopping while supporting Nevada County businesses.

Finally, if you just HAVE to get out of the house, Northstar Ski Resort is open, but with some modifications to ensure the health and safety of their guests and staff.

No matter where you are or how you are celebrating the turning of the calendar, we wish you a healthy, happy, and safe new year.
