Community Calendar and Announcement Guidelines

The Community Calendar is designed to cover local events that are of general interest to the Wilton community. It is best suited to events which take place on a single day, or at most two days. Longer events, such as a three-month long clothing drive, or the multi-week Giving Tree, should be put in a news article so that a single event doesn’t take up every day of the week on the Community Calendar.

  • Location: Events must be located in Wilton.  Exception is made for Lyndeborough events that are co-sponsored by a Wilton organization such as the Wilton-Lyndeborough Women’s Club, or the WLC school district.
  • Event Description: All important information about the event should be placed in the description itself, in plain text, including the date, time, and location of the event. Flyers and graphic images should be attached to the event as PDFs rather than added as an image in the description. These images do not scale well on mobile devices, and are generally unreadable.
  • Fees: Events should be free except for non-profits who charge an entrance or ticket fee (e.g. Andy’s Summer Playhouse, High Mowing School), or a participation fee for a fundraising event.  Public service courses such as CPR classes sponsored by the Fire Department, Health Clinics, classes at the Library, etc. may also charge a fee for materials or certifications.
  • Sponsors: Events must be sponsored or co-sponsored by a Wilton-based organization. While events held by the Library, FRES/WLC, and High Mowing are usually posted on their own websites (which is where patrons know to look for them), all of these organizations are welcome to post important events of wide interest on the town Community Calendar as well.
  • Commercial Businesses: The Community Calendar is not the place to promote events held by individual businesses in town, e.g. discount sales taking place in a store, online promotions, holiday promotions, etc. The proper place for these is on the Merchants and Residents of Wilton Facebook page.
  • Political Events: Campaign events for individual candidates are not allowed. Multi-candidate forums, such as Wilton’s Candidates Night, or a League of Women’s Voters Congressional Candidates event (held in Wilton) are allowed.

Announcements and News articles should be non-commercial and of general interest to the Wilton community (we'll make an exception for commercial announcements that directly support or relate to a town event such as Summerfest).
These could include:
   • changes to operating hours at town facilities;
   • disrupted, changed, or new town services;
   • festival information;
   • Wilton residents, town employees, & local businesses in the news.
