We will post Downtown Hillsboro events, programs, classes, or fun activities to this calendar. Here are the parameters:
Submit using this form. We recommend you submit your event at least one month in advance. Please allow at least one week (7 days) for submissions to be visible on the calendar.
Posting your event on Facebook reaches not only your followers, but also other people searching for local events. Boosting (paying for advertising) on Facebook is affordable too and allows you to narrow the audience to fit you target demographics.
If your event is in collaboration with others, invite them to be cohosts. Just remember that cohosts have the same admin accessibility to make changes to the event. Feel free to reach out to HDP if you would like to add us as a cohost to expand your exposure to a broader audience. This may be a good option if your event is a community event or a collaborative event between businesses happening in Downtown.
