Recurring Events Policy

  • We prioritize one-time-only events to avoid clutter.
  • Daily events can be added for a maximum of 7 days.
  • If you are posting about Hiring, instead of submitting the application period, submit the application deadline (one day).

Events vs. Activities

On average, promotes 60+ events every week, so we have decided to keep our community events calendar focused on unique one-time-only events vs. year-round activities. If concerned that your event doesn’t qualify, just email with your event name & date.
  • An Event is a one-time-only occasion that has a fixed end date.
  • Can include recurring events.
  • Concerts, speaker series, film screenings, art receptions, sports games, open mic nights, workshops, dances, fundraisers, club nights, career fairs… and more!
  • An Activity is a recreational pursuit that does not have a specified end date.
  • If anyone can go at any time, it counts as an Activity and not an Event (e.g. skating, rock climbing, art gallery).
  • However, if you are hosting a special, one-time-only occasion (e.g. figure skating show, rock climbing competition, art gallery reception), this likely counts as an Event.
