Feature or Boost your Event

target_300Our website features a comprehensive Event Calendar system that lists many local events in the Columbia Valley and East Kootenay region of BC.

When an event occurring 2 months (or longer) from now is posted into one of our calendars, it may not appear exactly where you’d like it due to a large volume of events ahead of the date of yours. You want readers to see it now! You can boost or promote your event so it is prominent now and every day until the day of your event.

So, we’ve created an economical way to get more people looking at your upcoming event now!
