Latitude 38 May Calendar
Dear Readers — We've included here all of the events that we believe were still on each host's schedule as of April 22. The current shelter-in-place order issued by several California counties runs through May 3. States and local governments may reopen in stages, so we expect that many more events will be canceled, postponed or rescheduled. We ask organizers to please send updates to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll post changes here.
