Adding your own events to the Patch calendar is a great way to get the word out to the community!
It's easy to do and it's free.
You can watch the video tutorial here (see the video below) or just click on the 'add an event' button on the events page.
Events are included in the Patch newsletter in addition to appearing on your local Patch site.
As an added bonus, putting your events on the calendar is also a good way to let your local Patch editor know about events in the community.
