Zimfest will be centered in the Living Learning Community (LLC) on the northern edge of the University campus. Housing will be provided in the LLC, Theophilus Tower, and Wallace Complex. Bob’s Place, within Wallace complex, is the location for on-campus meal service. Theophilus Tower will be the site for many of the workshops, with the remainder taught outside or in buildings on campus within a short walk of the Zimfest Village.

The four-day weekend commences with Thursday afternoon’s workshops. Later, the larger community will gather before a rising full moon to welcome the local Nez Perce Tribal Elders and our Zimbabwean guests for Zimfest 2012’s outdoor Welcome Concert at Ghormley Park.

Afternoon concerts and the Marketplace will take place at Ghormley Park, a Moscow city park located on the corner of West Third Street and Home Street. Enjoy the wonderful sounds of Zimbabwean music under the full canopy of shade provided by Ghormley Park’s grove of mature hardwood trees. U of I’s SUB Ballroom will be the site of the evening concerts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. The SUB Ballroom, located on the east side of campus within a 10-minute walk through campus from the Zimfest Village, will also be the site for Sunday’s delicious Zimbabwean Dinner.
