>> let's go!!

The let's go! calendar is a monthly events calendar of shows, art openings, cultural events, outdoor activities, film screenings, educational events, parties, and other fun things to do around Bloomington, Indiana. There is no formal organization of the calendar. It's just a tradition that was started late in the summer of 2003. Every month, a different person collects events and designs and makes copy of the calendar to distribute around town. They also pick the person to do the next month's calendar. You can pick up the monthly print Let's Go! Calendar at TD's CD's & LP's or at various other spots in the city.

If you have events or want to submit to next months calendar, e-mail letsgobloomington@protonmail.com or talk to the person responsible for next month's calendar. Look at us on the Book of Faces and Instagram. Online presence is three rotating volunteers.
