The Final Four tournament has been canceled. So has the Atlanta St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival. These cancellations are proactive ways to help keep everyone as healthy as possible, in light of the current situation.
We’re keeping a list of cancellations for events we’ve promoted on this site, and we’re marking events as canceled or postponed on our calendar.
However, we’re already behind on cancellation notices. You should probably assume every live event on the calendar has been canceled, unless you are able to verify on your own that it is taking place.
What to expect going forward
We simply don’t know.
We’ve heard from venues like the Alliance Theatre and Theatrical Outfit that, as of now, they are continuing their seasons. Both outlined a plan for stepping up sanitation efforts. These are all small venues with a limited number of seats, so you may feel that attending a play here is not a major risk.
We have no idea what will happen with the run of Hamilton, which opens on March 31st at the Fox Theatre — a venue that holds crowds of over 4,000 people. We have tickets ourselves, and we’ll update you when we hear anything at all.
What we do know is that New York City has banned any gathering of more than 500 people, including Broadway shows. Atlanta may follow that lead.
What we’ll be doing on this site
We’re going to keep adding events to our calendar — particularly events in April and May.
BUT, we simply don’t have the resources or girlpower to keep tabs on every single cancellation. Now more than ever, you’ll need to check the status of every event before you head out.
Within every one of our posts about an event, we include a link to the official website or Facebook page. This is so you can conveniently check the details, including cancellation status.
But the fact that something has not been canceled does not automatically mean it’s a wise choice to go. We know that being in a crowd is particularly risky right now — so please consider staying home as much as possible.
Or, if you must go out, consider activities that don’t bring you close to other people. We’re going to try to step up content with a focus on self-guided walking tours, parks and trails, public art displays, etc.
If you have ideas about content that would be helpful to you while we’re all sticking closer to home, please let us know. You can email us at email@example.com
Please continue to support us!
