Listing Events

Are you interested in listing your event on this website?

If you are an event organiser, or you are running an event in Canberra or the region which has broad community appeal then you can list your event on here for free. Events from the region may be considered if they are Major Events like festivals.

Events must be confirmed, and have a start and end date with approved opening and closing times. You’ll need between one and six photos, at least 2048 pixels wide x 1536 pixels high, to appear against your listing. Portrait sized photos, logos or photos containing text will not meet National Guidelines and won’t be accepted. An event description of 50-100 words that sells your event and doesn’t contain dates, times, addresses, costs, URLs or email addresses.

Eligible events must fall into one or more of these categories:

• Community
• Family friendly
• Food and Wine
• Major Events
• Exhibitions
• Festivals and Celebrations
• Markets
• Music
• Sport
• Talks and workshops
• Theatre and dance

Eligible community events are public events that take place in a public venue, specially targeting audiences or attendances from the broader Canberra community.

School fetes, church fairs, fundraisers, personal/professional development courses, business /networking events and regular/permanent events are ineligible for listing.

If you are unsure whether your event meets the eligibility requirements, please contact the Digital Database Coordinator during business hours on P: 02 6205 0029 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If your event is not suitable for this website, you may wish to try the following promotional avenues: specifically for community organisations and smaller events and/or for their Community Switchboards
