Everything you wanted to know about the insidetoronto.com events calendar

The events calendar at insidetoronto.com is a popular website feature. To better serve you, we've compiled a list of helpful hints and instructions for submitting your events as well as a list of calendar features that you can use. We've also added a pair of how-to videos: one on how to sign up for the site, and the second on how to submit an event.

If you wish to submit an event, you must register as a user. Click here to register.

If you're already registered, click here to login.

If you wish to submit an event but need some additional assistance, you can download our easy-to-follow instructions here in PDF format.

QUESTIONS

How much do I pay to use the online calendar?

The online calendar is a free feature, primarily for non-profit organizations and community groups. Your event will qualify for two of our 10 online community calendars. It will appear in the calendar that covers the geography of your event location (i.e. North York). It will also appear on our Toronto calendar, an all-encompassing calendar of every event in the city.

How long does it take for my event to go live on the website?

Events submitted go online within a half-hour after administrator approval. We check for events a minimum of twice a day.

What filtering options are there?

In addition to a comprehensive city-wide calendar, we have calendars in each of our nine communities (Beach, City Centre, East York, Etobicoke, North York, Parkdale, Scarborough and York). Events can also be filtered by category.

Will my event appear in the newspaper?

While all Toronto events are given consideration for print in the relevant local edition, space is limited and is prioritized for local, not-for-profit events.

Can I edit my event?

Even if it's already published, you can edit and update your event at any time.

Once I’ve submitted my event, do I have to do anything else to make sure it gets considered for print?

No, once it’s online we know it’s there.

Who can I contact for further help?

You can email communities@metroland.com or lpiacentini@insidetoronto.com for further assistance.


TIPS FOR SUBMITTING YOUR EVENTS

• The earlier you submit the better for maximum exposure. You can always add additional information later.

• Avoid using all caps.

• To save yourself time, check and see if the event venue is already in our system by typing the first few letters into the venue field. If it’s in our system, the venue details will automatically flow in.

• Fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory.
