We’re always trying to help you experience the best of the city through our stories on Time Out. And right now, as most of L.A.’s largest events have been canceled or postponed, that includes keeping you up to date with the latest event developments.

Guidelines released by the governor’s office on March 11 called for the cancellation or postponement of gatherings larger than 250 people. In its wake, there were a slew of cancellations for theater productions, music festivals, concerts and other large-scale events to ensure Angelenos’ safety.
The short version of what went down in the days that followed: Bars were shuttered, restaurants closed for dine-in and gyms and entertainment venues were forced to close. Even trails, beaches and some parks were closed off for weeks, all as part of the county’s “safer at home” measure. But finally, some of the measures are being relaxed starting in early May—enough so that we also suggest keeping up with our running list of what’s open in L.A.
To help keep you up to date, we’ve compiled a list of all the major event cancellations in L.A. We’ll be updating this list continually as new announcements break.
