5 Reasons Why You’re Going to Love Our New Calendar

We love our new calendar, and we hope you do too.

YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY check out our events calendar. It’s shiny and new and we love it. But to make sure you love it too, we thought we’d give you five reasons why it’s special. And don’t just take our word for it, check it out for yourselves. Here’s a link that will take you to all of the best things to do in Milwaukee. 

1. It’s Easy to Search

Looking for a specific event? Or maybe not a specific event, but a specific kind of event? This calendar makes it easy. Type in some keywords and it will pull up the best results. Or, search by category – we recommend Food & Drink and Arts & Entertainment – to find the best events in your area. 

2. You Can Customize the Setting

There are multiple ways to sort and display the calendar listings. We set you up with a default list format descending by time of day. But if you prefer seeing your events on a grid or map, both are options. You can also star events you like to  start a list of favorites. And it’s not just for Milwaukee either. You can search for events in any city you plan on visiting.

3. We’re Scanning Local Event Listings

One of the best features about this calendar is that it is constantly scanning for new events in the area. That means, we are automatically curating some of the best events in town. It also means your event might already be listed in our calendar without you having to lift a finger. 

4. Add Your Own Event for Free

If you want to add your event to the calendar it’s free, and really easy. All you have to do is hit the shiny red “Add Event” button in the upper right-hand corner and walk through the steps. Make sure you take a look at the similar existing events, in case we already did the work for you. If you don’t see it, just fill out a simple form including your event title, location, date, categories and a photo. Your event should be listed on the website within two hours of submitting.

5. Promote Your Event to Milwaukee Magazine Readers

Want your event to stand out? There’s options for that too. Right next to the “Add Event” button is the “Advertise Here” option. You can create a sidebar ad for $15 a day or have your event highlighted and featured at the top of the page for $10 a day.
