Did you know that community groups can add details about coming events to the Doppler events calendar to let the Huntsville & area community know what you’ve got going on?
Our calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make an exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at [email protected] to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping to make Huntsville a vibrant community!
Here’s what you need to do if you’d like to add your community event(s):
- In the menu above, click Events>Add Your Event (but not until you’re finished reading this page!)
- If you don’t already have a WordPress account, you’ll be prompted to register. (Don’t worry – it’s free.)
- Enter the details for your event.
- Image (Despite what the on-page instructions say, please ensure that your uploaded photo is less than 250kB.)
- Time & Date
- Venue (You can see if your venue has already been added by clicking the drop down menu.)
- Organizer(s) (Once you have added an organizer, you’ll be able to add that person to your new events from the drop-down menu)
- Event website (If applicable. You could also put your organization’s website here.)
- Cost (If your event is free, please just type Free in the cost field or leave it blank.)
- You can edit your event any time by clicking Events>Edit Your Event in the menu above.
All events will be moderated before posting to the site so that we can ensure the quality of content being posted. We will endeavour to have your event appear on the calendar within one business day of being posted, but please ensure you post your events well in advance of your event date.
