If you are looking to spread the word and increase participation in your event, there are several channels for promotion:
Submit your event to the Wakefield Community Calendar. This online calendar, maintained by the Beebe Library, is featured on the Town of Wakefield and Beebe Library’s websites.
Advertise with a banner
Thanks to the hard work of the Wakefield Main Streets organization, and the generous donations of individuals and corporate sponsors, the Town of Wakefield features informational kiosks throughout our downtown. The purpose of these kiosks is to offer Wakefield organizations, citizens, non-profit groups, and town government an alternate medium to share information and promote public events. You can submit a poster to promote your event by following these steps.
- Wakefield Community Access TV (WCAT) provides civic, educational, cultural, and public content from the government and public channels of Verizon (42 and 40), Comcast (22 and 3) and RCN (13 and 3). Connect with the WCAT staff to see how they may be able to feature your event.
- For over a century, the Wakefield Daily Item has served the community. It publishes a printed newspaper Monday through Friday and posts lead stories on its website.
- Online news outlets, like Wakefield Patch, North Suburban News, and Wicked Local, among others, often publish Wakefield-based news and events. Facebook community groups are also great options to help spread the word.
