The Schellraiser 2022 music festival kicked off its fundraising drive last week by donating $25,000 to the nonprofit Nevada Northern Railway in Ely. The donation will help the railway complete the restoration of Locomotive 81.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and statewide restrictions on outdoor gatherings, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone Schellraiser until June 2022. We are optimistic that Covid vaccines will become widely available to the general public this year, and that the pandemic will be under control by late spring of next year. We encourage everyone to get immunized as soon as they’re eligible to receive one of the vaccines. In the meantime, we hope that you’ll continue to wear face masks and practice social distancing to help prevent the spread of the virus. The future of the live music industry — and this event — depends on these simple and courteous precautions.
