Help Us Promote Your Event

The events calendar is the most popular section of Make sure your event is listed so that it can be found by visitors and considered for other marketing uses such as social media posts, the monthly Insiders Club e-newsletter and more.

Please note that the calendar only lists events with broad appeal that would interest visitors outside of Columbus, such as festivals, sporting events, live music, visual arts and events of that nature.

How do I submit an event?

Create an account with If you're submitting a non-arts event, please notify Erin George at so our team can be on the lookout for your submission. Once approved (which may take a couple of days), you will be able to upload all of your events moving forward. 

By entering them once, all events will be shared with Experience Columbus, TourismOhio and Ohio Magazine. Cultural and arts events will also be listed on and If you have any questions about Ohio Event Finder, please contact Nick Dekker at

Troubleshooting: Why isn’t my event showing up?

We receive event submissions to our database every night. Once submissions are received, there is an approval and processing period before events will appear on our website. To allow plenty of time for promotion, we encourage you to submit your event several weeks (or months) in advance. 

Why is my event information different from what I submitted?

Experience Columbus staff serve as editors of the content submitted to the calendar. Please keep this in mind, as the content you submit may be edited for the visitor audience or changed to reflect our marketing guidelines. Experience Columbus does not receive modifications you make to an event after it has been submitted. Please contact us if you wish to make a change to an existing event on the Experience Columbus calendar.

Do Experience Columbus partners receive additional exposure?

It’s free for anyone to post an appropriate event to our calendar. Partner events are candidates for additional exposure, such as a feature on our website homepage or in other marketing materials.
