COVID-ERA LOWDOWN LITE!

The once-vibrant Humboldt events scene is on hold while we figure out this pesky global pandemic situation. Sucks, we know. For the time being, though, the Lost Coast Outpost presents a greatly diminished version of the ol’ LoCO Lowdown here. Below, find listings for local events, both online and in-person-but-socially-distant, that meet current  recommended safety standards.

There will be fun again someday. Consider this a li’l breather.

Got a COVID-appropriate event coming up? Neat! Submit that event here!
