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.

To learn about WITF events, please visit our Events page.


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.
