2021 cultural events

This page lists 7 cultural events I attended in 2021. Movies are listed on my films page, not here. The program index page displays thumbnails of all the printed program images. Cities are in California, except as noted.

The world shut down in spring 2020 due to coronavirus and remained closed for much of 2021. No live performances from Earplay and Oregon Shakespeare, though plenty of online events. Large SF arts organizations resumed live performances in the fall.

Highlights of 2020 to date:

I started keeping event data in the format used by this page in 2010, so data from 2010 to date is accurate. I started keeping appointment calendar data in .txt format in August 2005. I later extracted 2005-2009 event data ex post facto, so data for 2005 to 2009 is less complete and a bit less accurate. I have older pocket calendars and hard copies of event programs going back to 1963, but I have not yet scanned programs for years before 2010 or entered event data for most years before 2005.
