How to Post your Events on the Campbell River Community Events Calendar

The Campbell River Community Events Calendar was designed with the end user in mind.  It is easy to use and easy to find any event in the Campbell River area.  

We made the Calendar free for all public events and have chosen to not require you to create an account. We did this on purpose, instead all events go through our filtering process and only go live once we have vetted them. So if you want to know what’s going on in Campbell River, you have an event, or you have someone else who has an event that is open to the public please feel free to post.

Share it on Facebook, share it on any of your social networking sites, we also have Campbell River Community Events on Facebook. Feel free to share and post on that page as well.

TIPS for the best postings ever on the Campbell River Community Events Calendar

Event Title (required): Don’t just post your Event Title but also post the name of your organization.  Such as:

Art Classes – vs Art Classes – Jane’s Art Studio This gives your organization a bit more of a push on the page and is visible to all who are looking at the calendar instead of just the ones who have clicked on your event.

Date (required): This one goes without explanation.

Time zone:  Don’t worry about this one it is set to automatically to Vancouver time.

Venue name (required):  If you post the Venue Name it may automatically populate the Venue should it already have been set up. If not, have the address of the venue handy to for the next field.

Include Map: Check this box as you never know who will be seeing this, they may not know where to go if they are new to town or from out of town.

Categories: Click on the field and a drop down menu will appear. There is a long list of categories, feel free to click as many as are pertinent to your event. However if it is a sale or flyer it will only be allowed in that category.

Location:  Just choose the location that is the closest. If there isn’t one there just leave it blank.

Tags: This is for Search Engine Optimization, just think of things that people would be typing into the search bar that pertain to your event, you may choose several, put commas in-between each phrase.

However, we have optimized the page so don’t worry about it if you don’t understand how to use it.

Audience: This is important if you have an event specifically for kids or Adults. The Calendar is getting an increasing number of  submissions which we are very happy about, however it can make for some extensive reading.  Visitors may be able to filter information that is coming through, so if someone is only interested in Kids Activities if you do not have your event rated for kids they will not see it.

Cost:  Pretty much speaks for itself.

Description (required):  Now this is where you get the chance to shine and promote your organization.  The Description can be as long as you like.  We find that if you post a full description, then add a bit of a blurb for your organization or a push for other events you may have in the future it works great.

            Example:  of a Limited Description: 

            Day hike into Paradise Meadows with the Strathcona Wilderness Institute.

              Example: of an Unlimited Description:

            Day hike into Paradise Meadows with the Strathcona Wilderness Institute. 

            We are the Strathcona Wilderness Institute, a non-profit society incorporated in 1995 whose mission is to inspire awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the natural world through     education and participation..

            The institute embraces the goals of the Strathcona Park Master Plan to protect the natural beauty of the park while at the same time promoting public enjoyment and respect for integrity and completeness of the wilderness.

            With more park land under government protection and fewer government funds available for services and facilities, it is increasingly necessary for park users to learn to assume responsibility   for themselves and to take care of the natural environment by minimizing the impact of their presence.

            Strathcona Wilderness Institute believes that by facilitating wilderness experience it will help keep the human spirit in balance in our ever-changing society.

Organizer name (required): This is the organizations name not your personal name unless it is one in the same.

Organizer email (required):  This is so that we can send you an email to let you know we have vetted and posted your event and prevents Phishing.

Phone number: Optional but if people choose this form of communication with you. It is however handy to have it front and centre when you are reading the post and want action right away.

Your Website URL:  Optional again, however; it is a great way to blow your horn a bit.

Free: Tick this box if your event is free.

Cost:  Post the price of the activity.

Registration URL starting with:   https://:     If you have a ticketing agent or have set up a landing page for registration this is where it goes. It works best if you just cut and paste the URL from the search bar.

 Submitter name: Pretty self explanatory your name.

 Submitter email:  This is important as we cannot send you an email to let you know we vetted your submission if we don’t have an email.

Image: This is one of the most important fields.  The image is what catches the attention of the people looking at the calendar. If you choose to not select an image it will automatically populate to our default images which are great but do not reflect your event, just the category. A nice picture captures the attention of the audience.

Posting Rules: Of course if you don’t agree you can’t post.

Submit Event: When you submit, your event does not necessarily show up on the calendar right away. In order for us to keep the process as easy as possible we forewent you the submitter having to create an account. In order to maintain the integrity of the postings we vet everything that comes through, so you may have to wait to see your posting live.

 We will send you a note when we have vetted the event. If you do not recieve a note in your inbox, something went wrong. Feel free to email us if this happens at:   catgcr@gmail.com
