  • Block Editor support
  • Event search
  • Google maps (premium)
  • Widget: Upcoming events list
  • Event Taxonomies (Categories & Tags)

Standard or Pro?

The Events Calendar is required in order to run a range of premium calendar add-ons, including Events Calendar Pro, Community Events, Filter Bar, and others.

But if you just want a basic event management tool you should get by without paying a bean.

If you enable ticketing, you will need to have an email address associated with your domain (for best deliverability) and a paypal or stripe account. Be prepared to do a lot of testing.

Events can integrate into the news/blog post stream, by design.
