A note about Friday's Go! Magazine

Friday's issue of Go! Magazine -- which also includes our annual Spring Arts Guide -- requires a bit of explanation.

The magazine is printed on Wednesdays, so events listed represent the best information we had at the time. For instance, when we sent our pages to the press, six area St. Patrick's Day parades were scheduled; by Thursday morning, all had either been rescheduled or canceled because of concerns over the coronavirus.

We're updating our content online to reflect the latest scheduling information. We're also maintaining a guide to coronavirus-related cancellations at stltoday.com/coronavirus. Check our list before you make plans. If you're not sure whether an event is still happening, check with the venue or organizer.

If your event is affected, let us know: Submit your information at stltoday.com/newstips. Please include details about the event, whether it has been rescheduled and your contact information for verification.

The St. Louis area nabbed three listings in Art Fair SourceBook's top 100 fine art events for 2020. Two of them, the St. Louis Art Fair in Clayton and the Historic Shaw Art Fair in St. Louis, are a few months away. But Art on the Square in Belleville is a spring tradition for many people. The SourceBook ranks it No. 4 in terms of fair sales for fine artists. The weekend before Art on the Square is another popular event, the Laumeier Sculpture Park Art Fair. Each fair boasts more than 100 juried artists along with food, drink and entertainment. Whether you have a large or small budget for buying art, though, there's no charge for just looking at a number of new exhibitions, including drawings by a successful Nazi hunter and sculpture meant to evoke music.
