3/29/16: Additional ways to promote your event

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 support@fullcalendar.com and we hope you find it useful.

2/16/16: More listing places and tweaks

Some of the listing places we’ve added recently:

SF bay area: Hoodline, Hilltromper, SantaCruz.com, Berkeley Arts Festival Calendar, CruzCal
LA and San Diego: ExperienceLA, Los Feliz Ledger, Escondido Times-Advocate, KPBS
Seattle and Portland: East Side Scene, Newberg Graphic, Seattle New Music Concerts newsletter & website, Visit Seattle
New York and Boston: NY Metro Parents, StartHubBoston, NY Tech Meetup website, Dance/NYC
National: TechCrunch CrunchBase

As always, we welcome suggestions and will do our best to get them set up in time for your event.

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 support@fullcalendar.com

10/23/15: Website tweaks

We’re currently updating some ‘cosmetic’ aspects of the FullCalendar website, but nothing major. Updating some button graphics, some words here and there. Also, we’ve created a separate page for your organizations and venues – click “My organizations and venues” on the top purple navigation bar, and you’ll be able to update them there, or hide the ones you don’t normally use (or show them again).
If you have any questions or suggestions, let us know! Email support@fullcalendar.com or use the feedback page:

6/5/15: FullCalendar nightly backup timing

You may find it helpful to know that we take nightly backups of our system, which makes the website unusually slow, around 8:30-9:30pm Pacific, 11:30pm-12:30am Eastern. Everything still works, but if you find it kind of pokey, that’s probably why.

As always, if you have problems, suggestions or other issues with FullCalendar, we want to hear from you! Email support@fullcalendar.com or use the feedback page:

4/8/15: Summer camp listing places

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:
http://bayareaparent.com/content/advertise.html

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

4/7/15: Spring Update – new places to list events

Just a quick update to provide a selection of the new places we’ve been adding to our big list over the past few weeks:

Chicago: Blue Sky Innovation/Chicago Tribune, Chicago Kids
New York: New York Music Daily, NY Daily News, Nerd York City
Phoenix: KTAR.com, azfamily/KTVK
San Diego: NBC7 San Diego
Seattle: West Seattle Herald
SF Bay Area: 510 Families
Washington DC: BackPage N VA, BackPage S MD, Brightest Young Things, Washington Life
Multiple metros: Racked, Small Business Trends

As always, please let us know of places we may have missed, and we’ll do our best to add them in time for your event.

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