While practicing social distancing, we know many folks are looking for things to do and ways to stay engaged with the Durham community. After all, at the stay-at-home orders' core, it's really about physically distancing ourselves from one another. That doesn't mean we can't find ways to be alone together.

During this time, we plan to publish virtual events and other safe, creative ways for you to remain connected to Durhamites, our local partners, and other Durham-based groups. If you have any questions, please email eventcalendar@discoverdurham.com.
