This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress. Public Events


This plugin is very simple. It fetches events from based on a given location. You need the (free) API key which you can find here: To include the local events, use this shortcode in a post/page: [upcomingorg_events]San Francisco, CA[/upcomingorg_events]. You can use other formats of locations as well, such as ZIP codes. In the settings you can define:

  • Number of events to show (will obviously be lower if not that many events are available for your query).
  • Radius to search around the given location
  • Show (or don’t show) the event images if they are available
  • Display the logo with the results or not

To edit the CSS, modify the upcoming.org_events.css file in the plugin folder upcoming.org_events/


  • Example of 3 events fetched for San Francisco


  1. Install via wordpress’ plugin directory or upload the through the admin interface
  2. Make sure your file access settings are set to 755 for the php & css file.
