Submit an Event for the Calendar

Got a kids, parents or family event in southeast Michigan?

Promote it in the Metro Parent calendar. Here's how.

Sign Up!

Create an account – or sign in, if you have one. (It's free, quick and easy! You'll get a confirmation email when you apply; check your junk mail if you don't see it.)

Add New Event

You're now signed into your "My Account" page – yay! Click on the "My Events" tab on the left. Then, click "[Add New Event]" – the one next to "Events Calendar."

Details and Photos

Fill in the fields. Get detailed! Photos are fantastic – but rename photos to your event name before you upload them. (It helps you show up more quickly in searches.)

Save – and Wait

Click "Save Event." You'll see a preview of your event come up on your screen. This does not mean your event is published yet! It usually takes us 1-2 business days to review, edit and approve it. Hang tight and check back.

OMG: Error

Oops – what if your event is "live," but you (or one of our editors) made a mistake? You can go into your account and fix the submission yourself (please note: that means it becomes unpublished again, and it must once again be approved by our editors). Still have a challenge? Email, and we'll handle it in 1-2 business days.

More, Please
