Community Calendar

We’ve lost count of how many events have been listed, canceled, changed and updated through April and May. We keep correcting, changing and canceling events as they come in to us.

As of now, event planners with civic, neighborhood, business and nonprofit organizations have been hesitant to speculate about meetings in June.

Instead of posting listings speculatively, and then canceling them, we’re wait to see how the novel COVID-19 Coronavirus affects events and activities.

Be sure to check back often to see what’s closed.
And look below to see live and online events taking place in May!

Your “closures and cancellations” notices are now vitally important to your community!  We’ll help you get the word out! Free! Send your calendar information to David@eastPDXnews.com. Deadline? There isn’t a deadline! We update information daily.

Through May, 2020,
due to COVID-19 virus concerns…

We’re updating the postponement or cancellation of events, plays and programs as quickly as possible.  Should you see that an event is still listed, it’s a good idea to check and make sure the event is actually taking place.
