Eventbrite API


The Eventbrite API plugin brings the power of Eventbrite to WordPress, for both users and developers. Docs available here.

By connecting to your Eventbrite account, events can be displayed directly on your WordPress.org website, complete with event details and ticket information. Events will blend in with the design of any theme, and events can be filtered by organizer or venue, just like post archives.

As a theme or plugin developer, you get simple-to-use tools for making any theme or plugin Eventbrite-compatible. Use the helper functions to remove the complexity and heavy-lifting of API calls, and take advantage of assorted template tags for displaying various event information.

Are there more detailed instructions for Keyring and getting connected to Eventbrite?

Yes! Check out the user assistance page on the Eventbrite API website, and post to the forums if you need any further help.

Events don’t quite look like the rest of the theme – how can I fix it?

While a theme doesn’t need to know about the plugin to display events, it’s always best if the theme developer optimizes their theme for Eventbrite. You can post on the theme’s forum and send them this link. You can also send an email to themes@wordpress.com and we’ll see what we can do to help. The following themes have already been optimized:

I’m a theme developer; how can I make my theme Eventbrite-optimized?

Assuming your theme is based on Underscores, most of the work is already done for you. Just load the theme, and compare your markup to that of the plugin’s included templates. Make your own copies, adjusting the markup as needed, and then assign your templates in an add_theme_support call. Most themes can be done in under ten minutes. More details can be found at the Eventbrite API GitHub repo.

What Eventbrite endpoints are supported?

The following endpoints are currently supported, with more on the way. Open an issue on GitHub to request support for others.

Where can I get detailed documentation for working with the plugin?

All development for Eventbrite API plugin is done through the GitHub repo, and detailed documentation can be found on the repo’s GitHub page.

Who made this plugin?

Works great. If I can install... you can!


I installed the plugin, then the keyring, followed simple directions, created a page just by changing template on the page. The folks who wrote these programs did all the heavy lifting. Thank you!
