Submit an Event
Thanks for preparing to submit your event to ArtsBoston.org! Use this simple form to submit your organization's events to ArtsBoston.org, the city’s leading online arts and entertainment calendar.
Please Note: Due to the high volume of event submissions at this time, we cannot guarantee that listings submitted less than four weeks from the event's start date will be accepted. Please submit your listings as far in advance as possible. We recommend that you enter your organization’s entire season at once.
Please read our submission guidelines before submitting your event:
Lead Time: We request that events be submitted at least four weeks prior to the event's start date. If we receive your event info less than two weeks in advance, we cannot guarantee that your event will be posted.
Public Events: All events must be open to the public. Invitation/member-only events will not be accepted.
Location: Events must take place in the Greater Boston area
Video: Are you interested in submitting a video to be displayed with your event listing? Learn more about our video submission process.
Event Images: In order for your event to be considered for featuring, we must have a professional-quality promotional image to display with your listing. A single image may be uploaded along with your event listing. Images must be in either .JPG or .GIF format, and no larger than 1 megabyte and 400x400 pixels. Depending on the size of your image and connection speed to the Internet, the upload process may take up to several minutes--please be patient. Once received, your image will be formatted for display.
All events will be reviewed and, if accepted, posted within 3-5 business days. ArtsBoston reserves the right to edit graphic images and submissions for grammar, style, and accuracy, and we may omit any events that we believe are not suitable for the site.
