How to Submit an Event to the Neighborhoods Event Calendar

Thanks for choosing the Department of Neighborhoods event calendar to make an event submission to our public calendar.

The DON event calendar is powered by Trumba. Get help using the Trumba Calendar.

You do not have to register or sign in before using the DON event calendar.

The DON event calendar is moderated. All public submissions will be reviewed by a DON calendar moderator, who will approve them for posting on the live calendar.

Events deemed inappropriate for posting to the DON calendar, per the City of Seattle event submission policies and guidelines, or that are duplicates of existing postings on the City or DON calenders, will not be approved for posting.

Items submitted for consideration to be posted on the DON calendar will be reviewed during business hours (8am - 5pm) on working weekdays and, if approved, posted to the calendar within 3 business days of submission. Items submitted after business hours on Fridays and over the weekends will not be reviewed for posting until the following business week.

The following pieces of information are required to submit an event to the calendar:

  • Name of Submitter
  • Email of Submitter
  • Phone # of Submitter
  • Event Title
  • Event Location (such as name of building or venue)
  • Event Address (with street address, city and state)
  • Event Date and Time

Note: The first three required pieces of information -- name, email and phone # of the event submitter -- will only be used if we need to contact you about an event you have submitted. They will not be published on the calendar, used, or shared in any other way. There are separate fields in the submission form for event contact info.

Please have all of this information ready to complete and submit for the event form. Without this information, you will not be able to submit the event form.

If your event is on multiple days at different times, then you will need to submit your event more than once. For instance, a theater production may have a Friday and Saturday performance at 8:00 pm, and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm. They would need to submit once for all the 8:00 pm shows and once for all the 2:00 pm shows.

The following pieces of information might be useful for the event calendar, and are included on the submission form, but are not required to submit an event:

  • Facility/Site (such as a building room #)
  • DON Program (if event is associated with or sponsored by a Department of Neighborhoods program)
  • Type of Event (such as Community, Arts, Business, etc.)
  • Neighborhood (such as Belltown, Fremont, etc. If you don't find it in the list, just choose the area or areas closest to you)
  • Event Target Audience (such as Adults, Children, Teens, etc.)
  • Sponsoring Organization for Event
  • Event Contact Name
  • Event Contact Phone
  • Event Contact Fax
  • Event Contact Email
  • Event Site Contact Details
  • Pre-Register for Event Required?
  • Event Cost (if any)
  • Agenda Information (only required for City events that provide agendas for public meetings)
  • Extra Notes About Event (such as longer event description)
  • Web Link About Event

Please enter valid contact information. Lack of valid contact information on your submission form (such as no phone number and/or email address) may delay or prevent your event's inclusion on the DON calendar.

Please do not place any HTML code or any any other type of code in the submission fields on the form. Any submissions that contain any type of code will not be approved.

Ongoing Events may be posted on the calendar up to a year out from the current date of event submission. Any ongoing events submitted to the calendar that extend beyond a year from date of event submission will be edited by the Calendar Moderator to extend for only one year beyond the submission date.

After sending the Event Calendar Submission Form, you will receive a confirmation email of your event submission. The submission will then be processed for approval.

If you need any assistance with the Event Calendar Submission Form, contact the City of Seattle Web Team.
