Help make this list exhaustive and up to date! Email information about Greenbelt-based events to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Deal Cafe
The Cafe hosted a St. Patty’s Day Party using Zoom (above) and there are more planned. For example, on March 20 there will be a New Deal Friday Night Virtual Hangout Featuring Rob Petrie. Follow the Cafe on Facebook for future events.
Old Greenbelt Theatre
Greenbelt Community Church
Kudos to this church for already having put their services online! On Sunday, March 15 they streamed to 60 viewers; surely that number will increase, given our collective anxiety level and need for spiritual guidance. As they wrote on their Facebook page, “We are not going to let a pandemic keep us from worshipping!”
And the creative folks at the Greenbelt Museum have launched a fun and educational series #MuseumfromHome on their blog. Receive something from the museum every day via social media – on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Instagram.
