What is Phillyfunguide?
Phillyfunguide (www.phillyfunguide.com) is the Greater Philadelphia region’s “go-to” web site for accurate and detailed information about upcoming cultural, entertainment and sporting events.  Administered by the Cultural Alliance, the site contains information on thousands of events and attractions.

Why is this online calendar different than all the others out there?

  1. We provide visitors with the same information as similar event calendars, but in a more enhanced way. The newly redesigned Phillyfunguide is Image focused.  Submitting organizations have more of an opportunity to stand out.  Submit a dynamic, high definition image and attract more attention.  Visitors want to find what they are looking for and want to find it fast.  We have simple buttons that help visitors find what they are looking for, “today”, “tomorrow”, “this weekend” or use our simple search fields to type exactly what you’re looking for; when you want it, and where and we will show what we have.
  2. We’ve also made it easy for visitors to sort through events with our newest feature; Tags! Tags help visitors find what they are looking for and help submitters make their events more easily discovered by their target audience.
  3. Phillyfunguide doesn’t simply list events, it guides the visitor’s event search experience with popular and sharable editorials. These editorials appear on the Phillyfunguide homepage and in the Funsavers email in order to highlight buzz worthy special events that are unique to the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Who produces Phillyfunguide?
Phillyfunguide is the result of a collaborative effort, led by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, of ten regional arts, culture and tourism marketing organizations.

Managed and maintained by the marketing staff of the Cultural Alliance, Phillyfunguide is part of the Cultural Alliance's efforts to increase awareness of, participation in, and support for arts and culture organizations in the Greater Philadelphia area, including the Cultural Alliance's over 400 member institutions.

Who are the Cultural Alliance’s partner organizations?
Phillyfunguide has partner organizations that use a custom version of the calendar on their own sites. Partners include regional tourism websites whose calendars are powered by Phillyfunguide.

Who is eligible to have events included in the calendar?
Any organization that produces entertainment events (performing & visual arts, sports, etc.) can submit events for inclusion in the calendar, providing that they are not in violation of Phillyfunguide's guidelines.

Will my event be promoted on all of the partner sites, in addition to Phillyfunguide?
While your event may or may not be featured on our partners' landing pages, your event will be accessible by doing a search from the majority of partner sites.

Where else will my event information appear?
Most of the partners in this project produce print brochures for tourist or local entertainment consumers. The information in the online calendar will be used to help produce these pieces. Phillyfunguide also features select events frequently on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.

How does Phillyfunguide choose which events to feature?
We highlight content on the homepage and category pages based on a variety of factors-popularity, timing, a diverse selection of content, and also a desire to fully represent the cultural sector. We welcome input and suggestions on content from our members

How can I send my events?
Just go to "Submit a Listing" at the bottom of any page on Phillyfunguide and click Submit an Event. We recommend you submit as early as possible.

Can I change my event information once it is posted?
Yes. Send an e-mail to info@phillyfunguide.com and we will make the changes, generally in 24 hours or the next business day.
