What kind of events can be listed?
All kinds of events can be listed, as long as they are held in the KRV. Free events, paid-entrance events, small events and large events. Cooking classes, geocaching, workshops, performances, fundraisers, annual “signature” events, auditions, trivia nights, beer/wine tastings, outdoor adventures, family-friendly events, live music and much more are the kind of events that can be posted. Take a look at our submission guidelines, below.
Who can upload events?
Anyone — individuals, organizations or businesses — with events in the KRV.
Can I upload events even if I’m not an official rep of a business or organization?
Sure. It’s a community calendar, and it may take a while before all the businesses and orgs in the valley are aware of and actively posting their events, so, yes, please do! (And let the org know about the calendar so that they can get more of their events posted.)
How do I add an event?
There are a couple of ways to add an event:
Add your events, one by one; just find the “Post An Event” button on our site, and take it from there. All event posts must have an image to be uploaded with the text.
Hire us to post your events, including a robust description, image, all relevant content and categories and tags. $20/event.dar.
What if I need help getting my announcements posted?
There is a local person who will post your event to our calendar for free. They also includes some local social media promotion in this gig. (It’s a great deal!) You need to gather all your info and write it up, but we take your data and your image (photo or flier) and posts it for you. Or you can hire us or one of our local writers to write your event announcement, find and upload a graphic (CREATE FLYER) and get your event listed, for $20 per event.
What makes for a good event posting?
A short headline (three to five words), an upbeat and interesting announcement, good category selection, a neighborhood selection anda great image! The first 30 or so words are what will be visible without an additional click, so write your event announcements to draw people in from the start! You can add links, photos, video and more to your event announcements. And if you’re comfortable with hasthtags, post your event hashtags, too!
Do the links and photos on our website come through with a copy and paste?
No! But include URLs in your text anyway. Do be attentive that if you’re copying and pasting text that says, for example, click here, that the URL will not come through. But if you write, for example, click www.krvmastercalendar.com, it’s easier for the viewer to see and sometimes in our event approval process we’ll go ahead and make the links live.
Does it cost anything to submit an event?
No, unless you would like to hire us to do the entire posting for $20/event.
