Nelson's anniversary: 150 years of city rights is celebrated in February. A long weekend of activities in 'Founders Park' with a lot of singing and dance, music, theatre, a punch and Judy show and local and international food and drinks.
Founders Park is an open-air museum, a historic village, with buildings from the beginning of Nelson (ca. 1830). A church, printing-office, general store, hospital, fire brigade, garage, railway station and many more. The buildings are from the neighbourhood and are relocated to the premises of Founders Park. Most buildings are daily open for the public.
This historic environment is a atmosferic location for quite a lot of activities in Nelson including weddings, (corporate) meetings and functions.
