Before submitting your event…
  • Check to make sure it is not already on the calendar.
  • Write the event description in sentences. Do not use all-caps.
  • Do not include time, cost, dates, phone numbers, etc. in your description. There are places for that information in the form. However, if your event is part of a series or runs multiple days at different times, we recommend that you link to details on your website in the description.
  • Double-check content for accuracy before submitting.
  • Include a horizontal photo, at least 857 x 550 pixels. The image must be a single photo, not an event poster with text. Events without a crisp, large image will not be approved. Submitting an image gives Root River Current the right to use it to promote your event and the region.
  • Submit events at least two weeks in advance to ensure adequate promotion
