There is no search available on the Time.ly Events Calendar, instead it uses a filter system.
To narrow down the events you see in the calendar, start by choosing from the options bar at the top of the page. One can choose from categories, tags, age, neighborhood, cost, type of activity, and more. The more filters you choose the more specific the list of events will appear on your calendar page will be.

We include, free of charge, user submissions for kid-friendly events and happenings in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area. You can submit your event directly through the “Post Your Event” button on our Events Calendar – or email them to us at email@example.com.
We may decline your events for free inclusion if:
- they are a multi-week class or a camp
- they are an audition and not an event
- they are not inclusive
- they are seeking to promote a sale or promotion/fundraiser/open house/happy hour
- they are overtly political
- they are geared primarily toward adults and do not have an obvious connection to caregiving/parenting
- they are over 60 miles from Portland-proper
- they are more than 60 days out from the date of submission
- not fitting in with the tone of the magazine or website
- daily hours for your exhibit, museum, studio or business
- it does not have a physical location or is not an event
If you event is excluded from being listed at no charge, we do many options for promoting your event at various price levels. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details, or check out our advertising rates and options here: http://www.pdxparent.com/advertise/.
We retain discretion to decline any events from inclusion even as sponsored events.
You can submit your event directly through our Events Calendar – there is a link at the top of the page that says “Post Your Event.” Please be sure to check our calendar to make sure your event is not already being listed.
If you have a specific message for us about your event you can add a note at the beginning of your event description or send an email to email@example.com.
You will be notified if your event, for any reason, is not included. All events are manually approved, so please be patient. If you’re having trouble submitting an event or if you don’t hear from us or see your event within 72 hours, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A handful of events on the calendar will be featured in the Time Out section of PDX Parent Magazine.
We have a event submission guide: Click this link to view it.
Required information for submissions includes:
Location, times and dates
A URL for additional information. Since we are a web-based resource we like to provide a website for our readers who are interested in finding out more information about your event. It can be a website, a facebook page, or an affiliated website that contains information about your event. Please be sure that your event is clearly listed on your website or in a facebook events page. Please enter the entire domain name with http, for example: http://domain.com.
If your event has multiple dates you can go to our Repeating Submission Page and fill the form. Once submitted, the form will be sent to the calendar director who will review it. You can also provide the multiple date information in the body of your event description and we will make every attempt to ensure the correct information is listed.
Please let us know in the event description section of the submission form if you would like someone else’s name and contact information associated with the event. As we are manually approving your event we will make every attempt to ensure the correct information is listed.
Image inclusion is at the discretion of PDX Parent. No more than 1 image will be included for an event and it should clearly be related to the event or description. Posters or fliers are great choices for submission. Please do not use pictures that you do not own or provide pictures of children without their permission or their parent/guardians permission.
Events are updated on an almost daily basis. We try very hard to make the calendar both comprehensive and accurate, however time constraints do keep us from being able to reconfirm every event on a daily basis. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to check with the host organization before heading out. And please let us know if anything on the calendar is inaccurate by sending an email to email@example.com.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any corrections.
Please email cancelations to email@example.com and we will take care of it from our end.
If you are operating a time.ly calendar than we can work together to set up our calendar to pull events from your calendar into ours. time.ly has free calendar options available. You can find out more information here.
If you already have a time.ly calendar or are interested in working together to start one, email the calendar director, Amy Conway, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
