At present, virtual events and adapted business models will replace regular events on this calendar. During this time in which people have been asked to stay at home to help slow and eventually stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, most events on the near horizon have been postponed or canceled. Even if that is not the indication here, it’s always best to call the venue or check their website/Facebook page to be sure of their status. We encourage you to stay home and stay safe, everyone!
