Events Calendar Submission Guidelines

 North State Parent’s “Going Places” Events Calendar Submission Guidelines.
Our monthly distribution is 19,000+, at over 530 upper Northern California locations.
Our events calendar is found on our website in addition to our print magazine.

Please note the following:

1) Events info needs to be submitted online by the 10th of the month prior to the month the event happens in, i.e., for an event that’s happening in September, the event’s info should be submitted by August 10.

2) Submit your event’s information via our online calendar submission form located in the calendar section of our website at

Direct link to the calendar submission form:

A photograph can be included for consideration for use as a calendar photo. Submit a photo when filling out the online submission form, or email a photo/photos separately to (by the 13th) after you submit your events info (by the 10th). Find more specific photo submission info below.

Note: NSP’s online submission form helps ensure we receive all needed information about your event. General press releases are not the best way to submit events info – we simply do not have the staff to process press releases to turn them into 50-word calendar listings. Our online calendar submission form pre-formats your event’s information into our layout style so the time we spend with your listing is focused on making sure it’s clear and inviting to readers.

We greatly appreciate your submissions and know our readers do too!


Calendar Photos:

We welcome photo submissions representing your event; all photos will be considered for publication as a calendar photo. Photos should be submitted in a high-resolution format (300 dpi jpg at full size is best).

One photo can be attached during the online submission process, and/or you can also submit a photo or multiple photos by email.

After submitting your event’s information online, email photo/s to

Please remember to include the event name & event date in the email’s subject line – we need to know what event the photo is representing.

Note: we are only able to use actual photographs to represent events in NSP’s calendar – we do not use logos, graphics or poster art.

We offer a monthly reminder-to-submit-your-events email send-out. Reminder emails typically arrive during the first week of the month and prompt you to submit by the 10th; each email includes a direct link to NSP’s online submission form.
