After 17 long months, LOH’s “COVID intermission” came to an end in August 2021 with the FREE Nexus Music and Arts Festival. The wildly popular festival was designed as an immersive, three-day experience with activities in Colburn Park, on the Main Stage located behind LOH, on the pedestrian mall, and in the rail trail tunnel.

Each day included outdoor performances from dozens of eclectic artists—a mix of regional touring artists, LOH’s Upper Valley arts partners, and local students—all featured alongside displays of public art and al fresco dining.

Nexus embodied the things we value most at LOH: providing broad accessibility to the arts, creating a professional and friendly atmosphere, and sparking joy and delight.

If not for the generous financial support of our donors—many local businesses, foundations, and individuals —we would not have been able to produce Nexus. Thank you!
