Dylan Days preview

I posted about Dylan Days earlier this morning so I figured I’d announce the preliminary plan for Dylan Days 2008. There’s more coming, including the announcement of musical acts and the specific schedule. Work is in full swing.

Dylan Days is an annual event honoring Hibbing’s famous son Bob Dylan and the arts community of the Iron Range. This year Dylan Days runs from Thursday, May 22 to Sunday, May 25. Regular features include the creative writing contest and literary reading, singer/songwriter contest, visual arts contests, youth talent shows, and live music throughout the long weekend. Special events for 2008 include the premiere of a locally-developed Bob Dylan exhibit at Ironworld Discovery Center in nearby Chisholm that documents Dylan’s years in Hibbing and his relationship with the Iron Range. Also new for 2008 is the addition of a one-act playwright contest with the winning play presented on the stage of the Hibbing Community College Theatre. A detailed schedule will be available at http://www.dylandays.com/.
