2021 National Garden Railway Convention news

Stay up to date with the latest information about the national convention in Nashville

Important update:

The Nashville Garden Railway Society regrets to announce due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 36th National Garden Railroad Convention has been postponed by the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort until 2021. The convention has been re-scheduled for May 30th to June 5th, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee. We have been working with the Denver and BAGRS clubs and both clubs have agreed to slide their scheduled conventions back one year to allow the Nashville club to host the convention next year.

There are many details associated with the cancellation of the convention we need to work through over the next few days. If you want to transfer your registration and apply it to the 2021 convention, please send an email message using the convention email address: ngrcnashville@gmail.com telling us this is your desire.  If you prefer to cancel your registration instead, we will need to issue refunds back to you by sending you a check.  We are unable to refund to your credit card due to the length of time that has elapsed.  

Please request refunds by sending us an email to ngrcnashville@gmail.com email address and include your name, order number, and mailing address.  In the subject line of the email, please indicate Cancellation Request.   We ask your patience as we work through the refund requests.

The members of the Nashville Garden Railway Society are disappointed the convention had to be postponed, but the health and safety of all people associated with the convention is of upmost importance to us. It is our sincere hope you continue to follow recommendations to stay healthy during the pandemic and we look forward to seeing you in Nashville in 2021.
Garden Railways is working with the Nashville Garden Railway Society to keep you up to date on the 2021 convention. As we receive news and updates, we'll share them here.
