COVID-19 NOTICE - On Tuesday, March 17th, the Government of Ontario declared a state of emergency, prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people and ordering the closure of all indoor recreational programs, libraries, private schools, licensed child care, bars and restaurants (except those that can provide take-out and delivery), all theatres (including those offering live performances of music, dance, and other art forms), cinemas that show movies, and concert venues. The closures remain in effect until Tuesday, March 31st. Combined with closures already announced by municipalities, businesses, and organizations, by default this means that almost all public events are cancelled until at least March 31st. If you see a public event on our website for March that has not yet been marked cancelled, please be aware that it is most likely cancelled. This does not apply to "virtual events".
During the COVID-19 pandemic, local events are going online because of public health directives for social (physical) distancing. We are collecting these webinars, workshops, concerts, and more in this new column.
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated with parades, "wearing of the green," and Irish food, drink, and music. On St. Paddy's Day, we're all Irish for a day! This year, events take place before, on, and after March 17th.
