REGARDING OUR SARASOTA EVENTS PAGES
PLEASE NOTE: Amid the coronavirus-COVID-19 outbreak, we are making every attempt to stay as accurate as possible, however event information may be out of date due to quickly changing circumstances. Event information is also hard to obtain as many of the organizations that hold annual events are undecided as to what to do right now. Countless calls and emails to organizations go unanswered, so it has become difficult in many case to obtain up to date information. We encourage you to please check with event organizers to be sure an event is going forward before making plans to attend.
To help you make decisions about large events during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, here are public health guidelines from cdc.gov.
