Less to Enjoy!
The Enjoy listings are for arts events as well as banquets and fundraisers for disability services organizations. After many venues went live again, the pandemic shut them down in early 2022. Activities are opening up again but schedules may be subject to change.
Check on events and activities before heading out. Also, check to see if the community where a venue is located has imposed requirements for masks or for showing proof of vaccinations.
Some museums, arts and theater groups that typically have listings in the Access Press Enjoy! calendar have moved to online services or are offering in-person services with social distancing and safety measures. Please check with a venue or organization before making plans. See what is available through the Minnesota Access Alliance and its calendar, at https://mnaccess.org/
