Welcome to Our New Blog to Email System

Greetings, Zimfest email subscribers (and readers on the festival web site),

Welcome to our new email system. Zimfest news is posted on the Zimfest News Blog and sent to subscribers via email. You can choose which types of email you want to receive from us.

The board and festival organizers post announcements on the blog, and they are automatically emailed to subscribers at 4:00 am the next morning.  We’ve been using this system for quite a while and just expanded it to include our entire large email list.

Zimfest news is always available on the festival web site — see the Zimfest News Blog.

News Categories

Each news post is assigned to one of three categories: Festival News, Festival Details, or Zimfest Association News. You can customize your email subscription to receive only the categories you want. See the Subscribe web page for details on the categories — https://zimfest.org/news/subscribe/

Please click the “update subscription preferences” link at the bottom of this email. That link enables you to choose which types of email you receive from us, and whether it comes in plain text or HTML format. (If you’re having trouble viewing this, choose text format; otherwise most folks prefer the layout and colors of HTML format.)

The vast majority of our email subscribers currently receive only the major “Festival News,” but many of you will want to receive all three categories, and perhaps comments as well.


Comments are public replies to Zimfest news. You can post a public reply in response to most of our emails. Clicking the Reply link will take you to that blog post in your web browser and you can post your reply there. Your comment will appear on the web site after it’s approved by our moderator. Comments are also emailed (the next morning) to subscribers of the Comments category.
