Patch’s event calendar is 100 percent populated with posts from Patch users such as community organizations, businesses and residents.
Here’s how to add your event:
Sign in to your Patch account, if you're not already signed in. If you don't have an account yet, click "Join" at the top right of any page.
Find the word “Events” just above the site’ banner photo. Hover over it; in the resulting drop-down menu, click “Post an Event”.
Type the name of your event in the “Title” field.
Choose the start date and time, and the end date and time. Choose a date in both fields, even if the event starts and ends on the same day.
Enter the event’s address in the “Location” field.
Say anything you want about the event in the “Description” field. To hyperlink text, highlight it and click the chain-link icon at the far right side of the text-editing menu, then enter the URL in the field that pops up.
The following are optional: click “Add photos/videos” to upload images, choose an Event Type, and choose Categories.
Click “Post Now” to finish.
Each site’s calendar is for events taking place within its own geographical coverage area. To blog about any event on any Patch, scroll past the top news stories on the homepage and click the green "+ Start blogging" button.
