Spring is normally a busy season for large food-related events. Global efforts to control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) by limiting large gatherings, which many of the country’s largest events being canceled, are underway.
This has inevitably impacted many of the spring food events throughout the city. Some of the decisions have been made by event organizers, some are coming from the venues or parent organizations.
We have attempted to track down the status of the various food events for March and April. Many of these are canceled or rescheduled. We will continue to update the status of these events, as well as add May events if needed. Additionally, if you are an organizer or a part of a food-related event feel free to send us a message and let us know the status.
