Calendar Event Submission Form

Events submitted today will be eligible for publication in the Aug. 30 issue of the paper.

All listings are free and printed on a space-available basis. While we strive for comprehensive coverage of Austin-area events, we cannot guarantee publication of any submission; however, submitting by the deadline (and with as many details included as possible) can only help.

DEADLINES The Austin Chronicle is distributed every Thursday. Event submissions are due the Monday of the week prior to the issue in which you wish to have your event published (i.e., submit your event by Monday, Aug. 20 for publication on Thursday, Aug. 30).

Want to ensure your event gets seen by our readers? Buy an ad for as little as $35. Email Cassidy Frazier (cfrazier@austinchronicle.com) for more info.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN WILL I SEE MY EVENT POSTED?
We try to post events as soon as we can; however, we are geared toward the print issue, so events taking place in the near future will take precedence over others.

WHY CAN'T YOU RUN MY LISTING IN THE PAPER EVERY WEEK UNTIL THE DATE OF THE EVENT?
We have limited space in the paper for event listings, so we generally run only those events happening in one calendar week, which includes the Thursday on which the paper hits the stands through the following Thursday.

WILL YOU PRINT MY LISTING WRITE-UP VERBATIM?
While we will use your write-up to learn about the event, we will not print your text. Because the listings section is editorial rather than advertising, we write the event descriptions in the way that we feel best serves our readers. However, you can buy an ad in our print issue or on our website by contacting Cassidy Frazier (cfrazier@austinchronicle.com).

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ONLINE AND PRINT LISTINGS?
Everything that runs in the print issue will run online, and your listing will likely go live online before the paper comes out. We reserve the right to publish only those listings that our editors choose.

WHAT IF MY INFORMATION CHANGES?
Please keep us updated about changes or cancellations by sending a message to calendar@austinchronicle.com with "LISTING UPDATE" in the subject line.

HOW LONG WILL MY INDEFINITELY ONGOING LISTING RUN?
We will only publish indefinitely repeating or ongoing listings for a few months, depending on the type of listing it is. If you'd like us to continue listing your event after that time, please resubmit your information. Take note: If you have submitted an event that repeats on a regular basis or is an indefinitely ongoing event or announcement, please keep us updated about any changes or cancellations that come up by sending a message to calendar@austinchronicle.com with "LISTING UPDATE" in the subject line.
