Upgrade your listing:
Basic calendar listings are free. However, we offer several options to improve your event’s visibility. The below prices are for single events. Contact us for pricing on recurring events. Pricing will be based on event frequency and duration.
- Display Image – $5 – On the Events Calendar your event will display with the image that you provide and a brief description. The same format will be used in weekend roundups, weekly roundups, and other locations that draw directly from our event calendar
- Sponsoring Event – $25 – Sponsoring Events are listed above the events calendar. They are shared on Facebook and also receive a Display Image upgrade.
- Premium Sponsoring Event – $70 ($75 value) – A sponsoring Event plus sponsorship of a weekend or weekday roundup for increased exposure. Limited to one per roundup. Contact us for availability.
First submit your event below, then once you receive the success message, you can pay for your single event upgrade below. Note: Events are still subject to editorial approval and must meet the Submitted Event Requirements.
Submitted Event Requirements:
- Events should be for kids from birth through teens. We will also list occasional events that are geared towards parents (for example, a parenting class).
- We do not list religious services – community events held by religious groups are fine.
- We do not list political or advocacy events.
- Events should be open to the general public and not just members of an organization.
- If you are listing a multi-day/recurring event, the event needs to be available on a drop-in basis for a single session. If registration is required for the entire sequence, it is not a calendar event. Please contact us for promotional options.
- Events should be submitted at least three days prior to the event date to ensure publication (and by noon on Thursday for inclusion in the Weekend Roundup E-mail)
- Please include your contact information in your submission (name and either e-mail or phone number). This will not be included on the published event unless you also include it in the text portion of the listing.
- Event Date, Time, & Location (please select an existing location if available)
- In the Event Details, please include:
- Event Description
- Event Costs
- Registration Information (if applicable)
- Event Link
- Photo (optional). By including this photo you are acknowledging that you have permission to share the photo and are granting Ann Arbor with Kids permission to publish.
- When selecting categories, please select all relevant categories. Use Control-click to select multiple categories
- If you are submitting an event with multiple occurrences that are not on a regular schedule, please e-mail me at [email protected] I can duplicate events and adjust times much faster than you can submit individual events.
Event submissions may be edited before publication.
Please make sure your event submission was successful. You should see a success page. If you are having trouble, make sure you have selected days and times and a location, or your image may be too big. Try submitting without it and emailing us the image. For featured events, we prefer a 1200×630 image for Facebook sharing.
If it has been more than 48 hours since your submission please contact Ann Arbor with Kids at [email protected] to make sure there were not technical difficulties with your submission.
Once you have successfully submitted your event above, you can pay for an event upgrade below. If you wish to do a Premium Featured event, contact us for availability and we will bill you based on availability:
