localendar.com was launched on February 1, 2000. Our goal is to provide people with true local content.
A lot of other places seem confused about what "local content" is. Lets start with what its not:
Hey these are interesting services. But theyre not local. We know that folks really want the answer to simple questions like:
"Whats going on this weekend within a half-hour of me?"
Thats the question that only real local information can answer. And of course, people should be able to get even more specific:
These are questions that localendar can answer. We let people search for events that are happening near them, and well even let them look for certain types of activities (family, sports, etc.). Travelling somewhere? We can find out whats going on there, too. Because "local" is wherever you are right now.
How we do it
Its really simple: We give away web calendars! We host free calendars for individuals, groups, clubs, and corporations. People can come to localendar to check & edit their calendars, or they can link to them from their own web-pages.
When someone adds an event to their calendar, they can indicate that it is "public" or "private". If its public, then the zip-code and category of the event can be entered. This gives us a database of local information from the best source: local people!
Do you have an event you want people to know about? Sign up for your free calendar and add your "Public" event! Does your club have open-house events? Put them on a calendar! You can also keep track of your private meetings and functions. Do you have a web page and want to add a community calendar? Use ours!
Schedule your events. Search for
whats happening near you. Simplify your life!
