We are publicizing online/virtual events – live and/or recorded. We are adding listing places where we couldn’t post before, and have cut some places that have not moved to online events. Enter your event as normal and for the venue, enter what you’d like the listing to say, eg, Livestream, Virtual, On demand, etc. Please enter the event’s city to indicate its time zone. Note: many listing places are focusing on local organizations’ online offerings, even though events could be viewed anywhere. Any questions, contact us.
If you are cancelling/postponing your event due to virus-related issues, please email us at email@example.com to let us know. We will do our best to help you communicate this. We also suggest posting on your website and/or ticket link what the event’s status is, confirming that it’s still on, cancelled, or in flux.
It’s not too late to publicize your holiday events – get the word out about your parties, performances, craft markets, and more!
FullCalendar is now accepting 2020 event submissions – feel free to enter your whole season!
2019 events can be entered now – we’re looking forward to publicizing your concerts, seminars, performances, talks, networking events, festivals and story times!
We just enabled 2018, so you can enter a whole season’s worth of concerts, seminars, performances, talks, networking events, festivals and story times!
VenueBook is a venue directory that allows event organizers to get online quotes, book a venue and pay online. Venues include bars and restaurants, galleries, theaters, lofts and private event venues. Currently it has 429 venues in the NYC metro, 118 in the SF bay area, 109 in the DC area, and 88 in Chicagoland. There is also an option for venues to offer complete packages, usually meals, but also art or culinary activities. We don’t know more about it, just mentioning it in case it’s of interest to you, either as an organizer or a venue.
Now’s the time to get your holiday events submitted to FullCalendar, or directly to media if you’re not using FullCalendar. Editors want them early to compile lists of holiday things to do, and your audience wants to know when their favorite concerts and holiday fairs are, so they can plan ahead. Happy Holidays!
We’ve just added a way for event organizers to learn about additional free and paid ways to publicize their event. FullCalendar sends listings, but many places where we send your listing will also hold ticket giveaways and other free options, and offer a wide range of paid options such as featuring your event more prominently on their site or emails, and/or their social media accounts.
When you enter an event, on page 3 (now called Enter posting instructions), you’ll be able to choose whether to receive this information, and how you’d like to receive it. There is an option to hide your email address, using a unique FullCalendar email that forwards to your own.
The rest of that page has been re-ordered so that the most commonly used sections come before sections less commonly used.
Please let us know any questions about this new feature at firstname.lastname@example.org and we hope you find it useful.
Some of the listing places we’ve added recently:
SF bay area: Hoodline, Hilltromper, SantaCruz.com, Berkeley Arts Festival Calendar, CruzCal

We are also making minor updates to the website. You should not see any difference, except any bookmarks to the website that are not to the home page itself will need to be re-saved. If you do have any issues, try starting at the home page, http://www.fullcalendar.com and proceeding as usual. Of course, please let us know of any problems at email@example.com
