New Community Event Calendar for Cambridge and Somerville

Cambridge/Somerville – In an effort to highlight some of the hundreds of local community events that happen in Cambridge and Somerville every month, this month the community blog will include a more extensive listing of local events. The calendar is linked on the blog under the link titled “Event Calendar.”

timtoomey.org/calendar

The new events calendar, built into the community blog, will bring together event postings from multiple other calendars, including the City of Cambridge, the City of Somerville, the Growing Center in Somerville, and other local and publicly available community calendars. The labels at the top of the calendar can be used to help you to find and filter out the events most interesting or relevant to you.

Every day the calendar page will be updated to only show the upcoming events from today until the end of the next month. Events highlighted by a red border are events I think will be particularly interesting to residents of the 26th Middlesex District.

I hope this calendar will become a useful tool for everyone in the neighborhood, please click around and feel free to share your feedback or suggestions. If you have or know of an online calendar you would like to have linked to and included on this list of events, please contact me by emailing toomeyblog@gmail.com or otherwise contacting my office.
