Search Tips
 
The Community Events Calendar has the capability for you to search for events by the event category, subcategory, venue, month, audience, keywords or date.

You can also search by multiple items at the same time. For example, if you select Community Events, all of the Community Events listings will be returned to you. But, if you then select a month, such as August, all the Community Events in August will be returned to you.

If you have searched by one item and wish to select a new search item without having our calendar search within the previous results, use the 'Reset' button on the search form to reset the form back for a new search.

Please note, that The Community Events Calendar does not display events for the prior month.

Events are added to this calendar on a voluntary basis, and therefore not all events may be included.
