Event Submission

One of the services that the Nelson County Tourism and Visitors Bureau provides to you is the coordination of event information with the Virginia Tourism Corporation. The information that you provide is placed on the Virginia Tourism website (www.virginia.org) as well as on the Nelson County website (www.nelsoncounty.com) and other websites and calendars we contribute to and manage.

Guidelines for listings: Due to space limitations, we reserve the right to edit copy. Events not eligible for consideration include: fund-raisers (walkathons, runs, etc.), local holiday events such as extended shopping hours, caroling, pageants, reunions, individual performing arts/events. Phone numbers must be for public contact.

As the event organizer, you must distribute business license, sales, meals and/or lodging tax registration, and submittal forms to all vendors. If there is food for sale, all applicable meals taxes must be paid to the Commissioner of the Revenue. If there is lodging (camping) on site, all applicable lodging taxes must be paid to the Commissioner of the Revenue. You must also supply the list of vendors to the Commissioner of the Revenue prior to the event. Questions? Call the Commissioner of the Revenue at 434-263-7070.
