SUPPORT LOCAL MEDIA – DONATE NOW

 

 

Going into summer everyone’s felt the effects of COVID-19 as local, regional, and statewide public events were cancelled or postponed. Organizers are doing their best to preserve what they can. Things are fluid and what’s happening at press time isn’t necessarily going to stay that way for long.

As of July 1, some organizers made the painful decision to end events, and others are delaying the decision for as long as possible hoping that things are going to turn around. Still others have not decided to host events virtually, or postpone to the fall. 

We’ve got details on the status of as many regional events as we could find. For venues that hadn’t opened at press time or have just made a limited schedule available, we’ve included online addresses so you can keep track of schedules as they evolve.
