Other News Sources

Cobourg News blog does not cover all the news in Cobourg and certainly not the rest of Northumberland.  Go to the About Page here for a description of “Topics Covered”.

However, below is a list of web sites that help fill the gap.  Most of them cover all of Northumberland and not just Cobourg.  All are free although Northumberland News is expected to start charging in Spring 2019.

Events Calendars

Here is a list of calendars telling you what’s on in Cobourg.  Mostly these have a limited number of events and include locations outside Cobourg.

Snapd One the best although it also includes club and educational events.  It also covers Port Hope as well as Cobourg.
Concert Hall It is actually their booking calendar and you cannot enter information yourself.  But they manage bookings for many of Cobourg’s events
Town of Cobourg Only Town managed events and you cannot enter events yourself. Often slow to load and has a poor format.
Northumberland County Quite good.  As you’d expect, covers whole county
Northumberland News Covers Northumberland County but the time frame does not extend far into the future. 
My FM Radio Station A limited number of events
Kawartha Now Includes most Cobourg Events – link at left uses search for Cobourg to limit results.
Cobourg Internet Calendar Compiled from the above calendars plus some events from “non-calendar” sources.  Also filtered so it includes only Cobourg Entertainment events open to the public.
