About Live Event Cancellations & Our Temporary Shift to Virtual Events
Monday, March 23, 2020
Due to city-wide cancellation of all large events into April, along with the closure of all bars and clubs, and limitation of restaurant service to pickup and delivery only, almost every event and listing that had been added to our calendar faced cancellation or postponement.
Cancellation of Live In-Person Events
Since then, every live, in-person event (planned prior to March 12, 2020) has been canceled or postponed. All major events in April and most in May have been pushed back or canceled with the city ordinance to stay home.
For the time-being, we have removed all events originally scheduled through Sunday, May 31, 2020. If public events are rescheduled or confirmed, we will update our calendar at this time. All in-person events from Monday, June 1, 2020 and after should be considered tentative until further notice.
Shift to Virtual Online Events
Therefore, until local restrictions are lifted, we’re shifting the focus of our site, calendar, and weekly guides to highlight live local (and select national) virtual events, along with other activities you can do from home and ways you can support Houstonians and Houston businesses while staying safe.
These are all live events, that are happening remotely and can be viewed and joined online from your home in real-time.
The organizations and venues presenting these events are not open for visitors, so be sure to remain at home.
Eventual Return to Normalcy
Although self-isolation and physical distancing are new and uncertain phenomenons, leading medical officials say that this will pass—after an uncertain period of time.
Once it does, we’ll be ready to shift our energies to covering live events and helping Houstonians re-emerge and re-connect with our physical community, as recommended by healthcare and community leaders.
Coronavirus & COVID-19 Resources
Please stay home, stay safe, wash your hands, and practice physical distancing (keep six feet away from others) if you do need to leave the home.
