In addition, we have up to 30 different event locations on the site that categorize events by interest including kids, foodies, wine drinkers, outdoor adventurers, indoor seekers, shoppers, and more!

Plus we post a screen-grab of events happening now on our social media frequently.

WHAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT:

  • AGM Meetings. Sorry, you’re just not fun enough.

  • Realtor Open houses. UNLESS you make an event out of it (ie, food, drinks, bounce houses, etc)

  • Continuing Education. BUT cooking, gardening, art, and similar 1- day workshops are great.

  • Camps/classes/workshops that run for more than 3 days /per event. If you have something great that runs for a longer period of time, use the form below to let us know and we may find another spot for you!

  • Verbiage that should not be read by children. We have a great sense of humour and are fans of adult-only events… just choose your description wisely ;)
