Submission Guidelines

To keep our calendar useful for everyone, please consider these guidelines before submitting events:

  • We do not post events for special promotions. If you’d like to publicize your sale or special, please consider advertising with us.
  • Please only submit events that will occur in Somerville.
  • If your event requires registration (like a summer camp or class), please submit the dates of the registration period instead of the actual dates of the program.
  • Have a question? Ask it.
  • For an event series, please schedule multiple events. Your event will not be approved if you put in one multi-day event.

Submitting to our online calendar is absolutely free, but we do offer a few additional ways to get the word out about your event or series.

  • Sticky: Guarantee your event is shown on the main page of the calendar: $15
  • Featured: Guarantee your event is shown on the main page highlighted as a feature to really stand out: $35
  • Promoted: Let Scout help promote your featured event through our social media channels: $75
