Many major events are being canceled.
Here at Triangle on the Cheap, we’re updating our posts about the events, and our event calendar, just as soon as we learn about a cancellation, but there is no way to continually check the hundreds of events on our calendar.
For that reason, please check with the venue or organizer.
Within every one of our posts about events we include a link to the official website or Facebook page for the event. This is why.
Please do click on those links and check (and recheck) to see if the events are still taking place. Even if there’s no mention on the venue’s page of the event being canceled, you might want to call them or email them to verify.
But this is important:
Just because an event is taking place, and we list it, doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a smart idea to go. Please avoid crowds. Stay home if you can. Take advantage of our wonderful state, county and city parks. We need to work together to stop the spread of this disease. Even if you feel fine, you could be infected, and you could pass it on to someone with a compromised immune system.
