Submit an event listing

Once you submit an event the page is reviewed before being published on our website to make sure you have met our event guidelines.

Event guidelines

You will need to follow these instructions to create an event listing:

  • Our events calendar promotes events being run by Merri-bek City Council or happening in Merri-bek. Your event will need to be being run by Council or taking place in Merri-bek, and needs to align with Merri-bek City Council's values and policies to be accepted.

  • The focus of the events calendar is on community activities, fun days, arts, and recreational opportunities. If the focus of your event does not fit in these categories it may not be accepted.

  • The events listed in our calendar are largely free or have a small cost or donation to attend. As a guide, your event should cost no more than $100 for people to participate in to be accepted, and even less than this if it is a short event.

  • We do not include open days or other events which are primarily aimed at signing people up to an organisation, program, or business in our event calendar.

  • If you want to advertise a local class, training, or similar event that runs over multiple weeks you will only be able to have a total of 8 event dates. Once the 8 event dates have finished you can resubmit your event for additional dates if needed.

  • We only include events at licenced venues in our event calendar if they are part of a broader, multi-venue festival.

  • If you are submitting an event listing, you must include an image for your event thumbnail with the dimensions 800 (width) by 533 (height) in pixels (around 100Kb in file size). This image should not contain little to no text for accessibility. If you do not provide us with an image meeting these specifications, a placeholder image will be used for your event.
