Thank you for submitting your community events to our RSVPA calendar over the past several years.
The way our community learns about events has shifted. Fewer community members are visiting RSVPA to find events. And when March 2020 arrived and canceled all plans, everywhere, we pulled our on-air community event announcements too.
We value your time (and ours). We are no longer accepting new calendar submissions and will take the calendar offline at the end of January 2022.
If you’re interested in on-air or online event promotion, Linda Green Clark can help! Send an email to learn more about supporting WITF through sponsorship or ad space on WITF TV, witf.org, or WITF 89.5 & 93.3.

If you used RSVPA to get the word out about your events, there are other online calendars available to you! We have included to a few of our own go-to favorites below.

Gettysburg Rocks is a bi-annual music festival, held in February and August. The festival features over 130 live bands across multiple venues in the Gettysburg area. The event benefits Four Diamonds, whose mission is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research. Money raised in February is donated to Four Diamonds via Penn State Dance Marathon (Mont Alto). Money raised in August is donated directly to Four Diamonds. Please visit fourdiamonds.org for more information on the beneficiary.
The original concept for the festival was just an idea until founder Rob Simon’s daughter Ashley approached him to help her with a fundraiser for Penn State Mont Alto’s THON group. During the course of an 11-week period the first Gettysburg Rocks event was planned, created and implemented and was an immediate success. The first event was held on the weekend of February 7th, 2014 and included 130 live bands across 12 venues in Gettysburg. The event raised over $14,000. After the success of the first event, Rob was approached by several of the participating venues to create a warm weather version of the popular festival and the August event was created. Since its inception, Gettysburg Rocks has raised over $81,000.
