City Website Calendar

The City Calendar is a service offered to web site visitors as part of the main City web site. The purpose of the City Calendar is to provide a central location for web site visitors to easily find information, dates and times of City meetings, Holidays, City Sponsored or Co-Sponsored Activities and Events, Park & Recreation Department Activities and Library Department Programs and Events.

The City Calendar is designed to be a service to web site visitors. The City Calendar is not a public forum or community calendar. The calendar is specifically developed for the use by City Staff to post events that are in support of a department's mission statement. Calendar items are considered web site content and are subject to City approval.

Departments have an “Upcoming Events” listing on their departmental web-pages which can include events and activities that may or may not be included on the City Calendar. For example, tickets sales taking place at the Mansfield Box Office, for an event not taking place at a City facility may be included under Upcoming Events on the Mansfield webpage, but not on the Citywide Calendar.

The Upcoming Events listing on the Visitor Center webpage may include a more comprehensive community calendar listing, recognizing visitors may visit this webpage to find out what is happening in Great Falls and the surrounding region.

From time to time, categories may be added or deleted as staff finds and identifies new Calendar item categories or finds that existing categories are obsolete. To the best of the ability of City Staff, calendar items are correct and timely. The City Calendar is not intended to serve as official public notice of meetings or events. Users should confirm information regarding events with the posting department.
