The latest cancellations and closures in Boston

An up-to-date list of Boston events and things to do that have been canceled, postponed or suspended

Here at Time Out, we’re all about helping you experience the best of the city. But now that Gov. Charlie Baker’s stay-at-home advisory has been extended through May 4, we are looking at more time being shut-off from much of what we love about Boston.

Gatherings of more than 10 people are banned, and Massachusetts bars and restaurants have been shuttered for dine-in business until at least May 4. All nonessential businesses have been ordered to close, and residents are being advised to stay at home and avoid unnecessary interactions. Restaurants offering takeout, delivery and curbside pickup are considered essential businesses and can remain open, as can grocery/liquor stores, pharmacies, banks and gas stations. (Learn more about the local restaurant industry's request for help from Gov. Baker.)

From shows and plays to the Boston Marathon and Red Sox opening day, many of our biggest annual happenings are being postponed or canceled.

As things change and officials make decisions on which Boston events will be canceled, we’ll be here to update you on what’s happening. Check back often as we’ll be sharing new information as it comes our way.
