We are happy to announce that the Gainesville Sun has established a comprehensive Events Calendar online at This site is interactive, user-friendly, and able to display more information and site maps. All event organizers are encouraged to enter their events free of charge.

The Division of Cultural Affairs is no longer producing a Master Calendar of Events either in print form or on this web site. We are referring all inquiries concerning events (other then those produced by Cultural Affairs) to the web site.
