Free Calendar Listings Submission Guidelines

  • Free Calendar Listings for Magazine Advertisers: If you have a display ad in the magazine, you are allowed up to five free listings in the current Events or Ongoing calendar sections. A Community Resource Guide listing in the magazine includes two free calendar listings. These free listings cannot be included in the Save The Date section. Additional listings may be purchased at the standard rate. Free listings are non-transferable.
  • Free Online Calendar Listings for Magazine Advertisers:  You are entitled to the same number of online calendar listings as you have in the magazine through our Online Calendar.
  • All calendar listings must be submitted online. Additional paid calendar listings must be submitted separately, through the Paid Calendar Listings page.
  • There are two free Calendar sections in the magazine, Events and Ongoing. The Calendar sections are for one-time or ongoing events only. By Appointment listings and classified ads must appear in the Classified section.
  • Listings that are not repeating events may not be listed in the Ongoing events section.
  • If you run a listing in the Ongoing Calendar, it cannot be repeated in the Events Calendar or vice-versa.
  • Submission deadline: The cutoff date for any month’s issue is the 8th of the preceding month.  We appreciate and encourage people to send their listings in as soon as possible to allow time to prepare the magazine. All listings must be resubmitted each month.
  • Word Limit: Events calendar–300 characters or less. Ongoing calendar–150 characters or less. We reserve the right to edit as needed.
  • Writing Style: Please write objectively in the third person, without using words like I, we, me, my, mine, our, us, you, your, etc.
  • Ongoing events must be verified every month that the event is still ongoing.
  • Confirmation: You will receive email confirmation of receipt of your calendar submissions. If you do not receive this confirmation, you must contact Editor@NAChicago.com to verify receipt.

How to Submit Your Listing

  • Forms may time out on your computer, so it is best to copy and paste your descriptive information from a prepared document.
  • We suggest you use Tools - Word count to keep characters within maximum allowed before pasting.
  • Fill out the form completely.
  • Use the TAB key to go from field to field. DO NOT HIT “ENTER”.
  • If you have multiple listings, just continue down the page to the beginning of the next form (Listing #2 and so forth.)
  • You may submit between one and five listings on this form.
  • When done, scroll down to the bottom of this page to SUBMIT.
  • You will receive email confirmation of receipt of your calendar submissions. If you do not receive this confirmation, you must contact Editor@NAChicago.com to verify receipt.

Thank you for your submission!
