Submitted Event Requirements:

  • 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)
  • 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) or expecting parents.
  • Only paid listings may offer coupons for events.
  • We do not list religious/worship services – community events held by religious groups that do not include worship or religious instruction are allowed..
  • 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.
  • You cannot list regular business hours on the calendar.

Please Include:

  • 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 Description

  • 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 eventscalendar@annarborwithkids.com. I can duplicate events and adjust times much faster than you can submit individual events.

Event submissions may be edited before publication.

Platinum Event Availability

A platinum event includes sponsorship of a weekend or weekly highlights newsletter.

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 the image and emailing it to us. For featured events, we prefer a 1200×630 image for Facebook sharing.
