East Portland News Community Calendar

East Portland News
April ~ (May) 2020
Community Calendar

We’ve lost count of how may events have been listed, canceled, changed and updated for March and April. We’ve been correcting, changing and canceling events as they come.

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

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.

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 April,
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.
