The Fall Calendar is Full of Festivals and Concerts, But Will They Happen?

While October feels like a million years away, we can still dream about a time where in-person events might occur – with caution and thoughtful planning. Even if October 2020 events drop into the vortex of postponement, cancelation or virtual reincarnation, it’s still fun to look into the crystal ball and see what the future holds – and like any fortune teller, our guess is as good as yours.

Are you putting on a virtual event you want to get the word out about? Send us a tip!
