On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray have been blessed with a unique friendship that spans over 42 years. Despite the many challenges of a progressive neuromuscular disease robbing Skeesuck of the use of his arms and legs, the two seek to live life without reservation, even embarking on a 500-mile wheelchair journey across the vast terrain of northern Spain. Skeesuck and Gray’s humor and engaging storytelling will leave audience members asking, “What can I do to make my home, my work environment, and the world a better place?”
