Q: Why do I have to set up an account and log in?

A: Your e-mail only goes to our staff and that’s how we contact you if we have a question about your calendar entry. We have real people that check your entries for accuracy, spelling and other issues.

Q: Why do I have to fill in all of the boxes?

A: The calendar links directly to users maps on their phones so they can find your venue, but only when you provide a complete street address and a location.

It will link directly to your ticket sales, as well, but only when you provide a URL. Get the idea? Please fill in all of the boxes.

Q: Why are Categories essential?

A: First, that’s how users find your event when they are searching for things to do.

Second, that’s how your event also publishes in the print edition of Tahoe Weekly. We cover Outdoors & Recreation, Food & Wine, Arts & Culture, Kids, Live Music & Events.

And, in case you didn’t know it, we have 43,000 print readers and 27,800 Web readers, so you don’t want to miss any of our readers!

Here are the categories we recommend (at least one of these is required to get in the print edition):

• Performing Arts – Live music, theater, dance, etc.
• Visual Arts – Fine Arts
• Literary Arts
• Food & Drink
• Sports & Outdoors
• Kids
• Professional/Civic Benefit/Learning – general event entries like benefits,
fundraisers, lectures, history-related events and community events

Q: Why doesn’t it show up on the calendar immediately?

A: It takes up to 24 hours for your event to post. Because we have real people checking all of the events to ensure your event is legit, it can take up to 24 hours to post your event. So, please don’t enter it multiple times.

Q: How do I get my event featured in the print edition?

A: Please e-mail your press release and high resolution images to [email protected]. High resolution images are required to be considered as a featured event for the print edition, and requests should be made at least 3 weeks before your event for consideration.

We receive a lot of requests, so the earlier your request, the better your chance of getting in the print edition.

Q: How do I advertise my event on the Web site and/or the print edition?

• You can spend a little money to have your event listing appear
at the top of the calendar by selecting this in your event entry.

• You can purchase an online Web ad by e-mailing [email protected].

• You can purchase a print ad for the Tahoe Weekly by emailing
[email protected].
