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

Begin your weekend in communal solitude during a silent meditative walk with Andrew from Walking Space. Being in the silent presence of another person can shift your relationship to a more conscious and present moment, especially when drawing upon the serenity of nature. Participants will have the option to quietly greet others at arrival and after a brief introduction Andrew will lead a silent meditative walk. While the walk itself is silent, participants are welcome to stay after to socialize. Because of the nature of this walk, music in earbuds, cell phones, and dogs are not allowed. Children are welcome so long as they abide by the concept of walking in silence. Pre-registration required. M $4; NM $6; children under 12 are free.
