Want to promote your yard sale or invite the community to your choir concert? Add it to the calendar.
A big part of Bethlehem Patch is our events calendar. We add upcoming events as we hear about them, but we don't know about everything going on in the community. We need your help. If your church is having its annual picnic, let us know. If your son's soccer team is holding a fundraiser to raise money for new uniforms, tell us where to go to help. There's room for bake sales, yard sales, school events, concerts, lectures, government meetings, fairs and more in our calendar. Follow these steps to learn how to add your event, and help us fill our calendar. Now the whole Patch community will know about your event, and it might even be featured in our 5 Things article or in our Weekend Planner roundup.
