Add an Event

Do you know of an event that other Rocket City Moms and Dads should know about? Don’t keep it to yourself! Fill out this form and we’ll add it to our calendar. You’ll reach tens of thousands of area parents and we’ll have the inside scoop.

Calendar Policy: Submitted events must be free or very cheap, special events (i.e. festivals or one-time events), benefiting local charities or non-profit organizations, or by request of our readers (i.e. Parent’s Nights Out, Consignment sales). We do make exceptions on a case-by-case basis, usually for our sponsors and contributors. If your event charges admission and is “for-profit” it is unlikely we will list it here. Please submit your event at least 2-3 weeks in advance. It can take five business days for your event submission to be approved. 

LIST YOUR YARD SALE

We are happy to accept Yard or Garage sale listings but we ask you follow a certain “style” so that they are easy to identify and locate.

Sample Title – “YARD SALE: 123 Sparrow Lane, Madison”

 

Make Sure Your Event is Approved!

  • Upload a photo. Ideally a photo that is at minimum 600 pixels wide and rectangular in shape (325-350 px high would be ideal). Including a photo makes it easier to share your event on social media and makes it more likely to attract the attention of our readers.
  • Include details about cost. If your event is free be sure to type in “0” in the box so it triggers the FREE box on your listing.
  • Include a URL. Whether it’s for a website, Facebook page, or Facebook Event page. If you don’t have a website to link to our readers are much less likely to share your event.
  • Read our policy. Our calendar is unique in that we are not a comprehensive calendar of local events. We cultivate events and only publish those that are family-friendly AND free/cheap. We make exceptions (see policy above) but we’ve built our brand on providing information on low-cost family fun for our readers.

  • The hyperlink for “this form” isn’t working and I’ve tried on my computer and phone. Is there another way to add and event on your website.

    • Hi Kathryn – we’re working on getting the “Add an Event” option added back into our website. We redesigned the whole site and are working out this little bug. It should be back up this week – fingers crossed – but please send events to editor@rocketcitymom.com in the meantime.
