Want to Post Your Event to the North Hills Patch's Calendar? Here's How

This tutorial is for anyone who wants to publicize their event for free using North Hills Patch's calendar.

There are events happening throughout Ross and West View every day, and without a crystal ball, it's impossible for Patch to know about all of them.  Did you know that you can add events to our calendar – for free?

Our event calendar is great for things such as fundraisers, classes, garage sales, shows, concerts — anything where you would need to know the when and where. It's not for things such as advertising or promoting your business.

The video above explains how it works, and it's incredibly easy.

Here's a step-by-step:

  1. Log in to Patch. You can log in and register by clicking on "Sign Up" or Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
  2. Click on "Events" on the top of the page.
  3. At the bottom of the Events page, click "Add an Event."
  4. Give your event a title.
  5. Choose a date, starting time and end time. If your event repeats, check the box that says "This event happens more than once or is an ongoing event."
  6. Under "Where," type in an address or the name of a location. If adding an address, include the city so the site knows where to place the event. Once you have a location, click on that location to save it.
  7. Fill out a description for your event. Tell us why we should be there and what to expect at the event.
  8. If you'd like to add photos, videos or a flier, click "Choose files to upload." You can upload JPGs, PNGs, PDFs and multiple types of videos.
  9. Choose a category and fill out all the relevant information, such as who the event is best for, the price, a contact number or email address, website, etc. Think about what you would want to know if you were planning to go to an event.
  10. Click "Post My Event."
  11. Tell all your friends how easy it is to do!

If you see news happening in Ross or West View, e-mail editor Richard Cook: richinpgh@gmail.com.

How can I also send my calendar event to other nearby Patch sites without having to re-submit a form to each?

When you post your event, scroll down and you should see a listing of other Patch sites. Just click the ones where you'd like to post your event. And if you have any problems, just drop me an email: richard.cook@patch.com
