Consider it your luxury calendar of the can’t-miss events in fashion, art, music, sports, travel and culinary arts in this month of March 2023.

luxury calendar: how to have a brilliant march

In like a lion, and out like a lamb, or will it be the other way ‘round? March is hard to predict, not to mention there’s that unfortunate business about the Ides. But come what may, it’s nearly spring in the Northern Hemisphere: time to get focused on ending winter on a high note.

Across the globe there will be events celebrating renewal, forgiveness, fresh starts and flowers. Sarah Sze’s contemplation on time, titled Timelapse, will take over New York’s Guggenheim. South by Southwest returns to Austin, Texas. The St. Barths Bucket Regatta sets sail. New York City Center kicks off its spring season and the Life of Pi makes its Broadway debut. Meanwhile, foodies gather for the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in Australia.

Closer to home you will find plenty to stream, including the new miniseries Daisy Jones & the Six and March Madness takes hold. And of course, women of power and purpose will gather to celebrate Women’s History Month.
