Events vs. Activities
We define an Event as “a one-time occasion that has a fixed end date. Can include recurring events, less than 1 month.” If you are hosting a multi-day festival or theatre performance, this will most likely count as an Event.
We define an Activity as “a recreational pursuit or pastime that does not have a specified end date.” If you are hosting a tourism activity that anyone can go to at any time, this is an Activity and not an Event (e.g. rock climbing, Haunted Walk, art gallery).
Note: If your Activity is hosting a special event for a one-time occasion (e.g. rock climbing competition, Guest Haunted Walk, art gallery opening reception), this will count as an Event.
Recurring Events Policy
“Events” include: Concerts, speaker series, film screenings, art receptions, sports games, open mic nights, workshops, dances, fundraisers, club nights, career fairs… and more!
“…I’m hosting a contest that starts today and runs every day for the next 6 weeks…”
During the busy season (September through April), our website promotes over 60-80 events per week!
Therefore, we prioritize one-time-only events so that the calendar doesn’t become overwhelmingly cluttered.
