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 support@fullcalendar.com

4/8/15: Summer camp listing places

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Some places we post events accept listings for kids’ summer camps, and some have a different process for them. Where there is a different process, FullCalendar doesn’t submit them, as they often have a fee or require information outside of our normal posting process. Here are some places where you can submit camp listings directly:

Koddler:

Bay Area Family Calendar (from Parents Press):
http://www.campsbayarea.com/camp-submission-page.html

Bay Area Parent:

We add more as we find them. Here’s to summer!

Hope this provides an idea of the types of events we help publicize: dance, music, tech, networking, health, benefits, family, and many more!

7/2/14: Changes afoot at national event calendar websites

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Here’s an update on the comings and goings of some national event calendar websites.

Zvents
Zvents, owned by eBay’s Stubhub, is now transitioning from a general event site to focus on arts and entertainment, more in line with Stubhub’s ticketing business. The Zvents site itself will be shutting down this fall. We’re told Stubhub will have an event calendar but we don’t know details. In the meantime, Zvents is only approving new venue submissions manually and individually, and due to their change in focus, we’re only submitting new arts & entertainment venues.

Eventful, SpinGo and others
Zvents has been providing the calendars for quite a few newspapers, and those have been transitioning to other providers, including Eventful and SpinGo. We have been posting to these already, and will continue to post to new service providers as we find them.

Upcoming
In a twist, the discontinued event site Upcoming, purchased by Yahoo in 2005 and discontinued in 2013, is being resurrected by its original founder, Andy Baio. Andy created a Kickstarter campaign to gauge interest and easily blew past his fundraising goals. FullCalendar contributed and will hear updates as it progresses. Its current plan is to launch mid-2015.
