The New Year brings a new web site – CobourgCalendar.ca The content is not new, it has been moved from the Cobourg Internet Entertainment pages. This section of the Cobourg Internet site has been the most popular so a separate site is warranted. Also, citizen input to the Cultural Plan asked for the Town to do a better job of collecting event information and making it available to the public, but currently, the Town’s event pages focus on their own events. They do a good job of publicizing Library events and events whose tickets are sold at the Concert Hall Box office but that’s pretty much it. So for information on other events, Cobourg Citizens must either rely on word of mouth, visit numerous web sites, read the posters around Town, or they can simply rely on the calendar now at the new site.
Source of Calendar Information
To be fair, most of the information on CobourgCalendar.ca is already online elsewhere. It has mostly been gleaned from sites belonging to performing groups and other community sites, notably SnapD, radio station sites and Northumberland News. But the hard part is being comprehensive and presenting it in a useful fashion. Hopefully everyone agrees that this is a useful service.
For a while, a Google search will come up with an error but if you go to Cobourg Internet, the links will take you to the new site. Or simply enter: www.CobourgCalendar.ca
If you have an event that needs to be promoted, and it’s not already on the calendar, email me at [email protected] But note that I don’t list all events – see my rules here. Or you can just make sure you post your event on the SnapD calendar.
Note that I do list events at the Capitol’s main auditorium since many of us go there – but otherwise it’s only Cobourg events
