BUILT SOLID & SUPPORTED

The Events Calendar is crafted the WordPress way.

The Events Calendar has been audited by many of the industry's WordPress experts including core developer Mark Jaquith for security & plugin review team member Pippin Williamson for best practices and plugin compatibility.

We've poured hundreds of hours into QA by a dedicated support team, monthly usability tests to guarantee that it's easy to use, and numerous user interviews to make sure you get what you want. We care about quality and crafting products that thrive in the wild.

The team at Modern Tribe stands by our work and offers light support every Wednesday to the community via the WordPress.org support forums. Feel free to ask a question if you're having a problem with implementation or if you find bugs. Looking for help NOW or need a deeper level of support? Add the premium add-on plugin and you get access to premium support forums with under 24hr response times on weekdays.

PLUG-N-PLAY & HIGHLY CUSTOMIZABLE

The Events Calendar is built to work out of the box: it doesn’t use a shortcode (nor is one available). Just turn it on, configure the settings to match your needs and you'll be making events within less than 5 minutes.

By developers, for developers...it's ready to be the foundation for your wildest hack sessions. Complete with a skeleton stylesheet to theme fast and efficiently, loads of tools including partial template overrides, a host of template tags, hooks and filters, careful documentation, as well as a library of code snippets on GitHub. The Events Calendar is built FOR people who build websites.

Whether your vision is big or small, we have you in mind.

We've scaled The Events Calendar to work on a network with over 25 million unique visitors per month and hundreds of thousands of events. We have it running for Fortune 100 companies. Major universities, government institutions and some seriously bad ass startups push their events with our platform. Thousands of churches, eateries, small businesses, musicians, venues, and non-profits are publishing and promoting their events with The Events Calendar. You're in good company.
