Events Calendar is a configuration of ArcGIS and a JavaScript application that allows the general public and visitors to discover festivals, shows, concerts and other events occurring in a community. The general public and visitors can check out the calendar of events, where each event is located, and then add the event to their calendar before scheduling a visit or trip.

The Events Calendar application is typically used by tourism agencies, planning and economic development departments, parks departments, and/or other local government organizations to promote events in their community. Event information can be accessed by the general public and visitors from a smartphone, tablet, and desktop computer.
