Check out the FREE Online Englewood Community Calendar

Did you know there’s one place for you to learn about all of the happenings going on in the Englewood area?  The website address is: www.ThinkEnglewood.com.  The site is FREE for everyone to view and it is also FREE for any organization to post an event.  This online calendar has multiple purposes, including:

  • If you know of family or friends visiting the area, you can direct them to the online calendar so they can schedule their activities.
  • If you are a resident of the area and you are looking for something to do.
  • If your organization is considering scheduling an event, checking the online calendar first may help you avoid conflicting with an event already scheduled.

The website is available FREE of Charge because of the collaboration between the CRA of Englewood and the Englewood Chamber of Commerce. Please encourage everyone you know, who is involved with any kind of event, to submit the event details to the website.
