Event Features

The following explains additional event fields and options you have available.

Ongoing vs. Repeating

Ongoing Events: If an event lasts for several days in a row, entering the full run of that event will create it as an Ongoing event. 

  • Examples of Ongoing events include art exhibits or theater runs
  • Ongoing events do NOT show on the daily listing exhibit for on the start date because otherwise they would crowd out more relevant one-off events
Repeating Events: An event that repeats weekly (same time/same day) can be set as a Repeating event.
  • Examples include Happy Hour specials or Trivia Nights
  • ONE repeating event shows on the daily listing with a link to show all events for that day
  • Repeating events only work for weekly events (rather than bi-weekly or twice a week, etc.)
