Want to post your next neighborhood event on the Patch? U.S. too ! It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, if it’s local it has its place in the Patch calendar.

Posting an event is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Here’s how:

  1. Create a Patch account and sign up to post your own local content on Patch, completely free. It’s probably the easiest thing you’ll do all day.
  2. Create a calendar event and fill it with all the awesome information people need to add it to their neighborhood to-do list. Choose a fun image to upload and above all, have fun with it! It’s your event, and the possibilities are endless.
  3. Post it on Patch! That’s it. Prepare for RSVPs.

You can post your event for free on a single patch, or if you really want to get some community attention, you can feature your event for $1 per patch per day. When an event is featured, it receives priority placement on the local calendar as well as the home page, article pages, our daily newsletter and our weekly calendar event newsletter.
