Anyone may host a Public Lab event -- it's a great way to get a local community together, even just for a meet-and-greet.

Posting your event

To post an event, visit

Important things to include when posting an event post:

  • the title of your event,
  • what you will be doing at the event (including goals if you have goals for what you would like to accomplish),
  • where and when it will be hosted,
  • if people need to bring anything with them (for example, hats and sunscreen if they will be spending time outdoors),
  • if you will have drinks or food there or if people should bring their own snacks,
  • directions on how to get to the event, or an address,
  • anything else that's important and specific to your event.

** It can be helpful to tag a location on your event. You can do this by using this button on your event post. This way people will be able to see the event location on a map.

We also have a Google events calendar viewable on page. To have your event appear on this calendar, fill out this form:
