Organizations may submit a calendar item online through our online calendar submission form. The more information provided by the submitting organization, the easier it is for the city to determine whether to post an event.
Please Note: Anonymous and incomplete submissions will not be posted. The City of San Marcos’ Veterans Events Calendar is a text-only listing. Fliers, brochures, and other documents will not be posted.
A qualifying event is a carefully planned, legal gathering that is open to the public and/or targeted specifically to Veterans and/or their families and surviving spouses; includes support groups, educational meetings, entertainment, and/or activities; and may involve a targeted theme or cause. Events may have an associated entrance or participation fee, but they cannot be for-profit. The event must be located in San Marcos and surrounding incorporated areas as determined by city staff. Additionally, events must meet one or more of the following criteria to be eligible for posting to a community calendar: City event or activity; City sponsored or funded; Not-for-profit community events open to the public and not exclusionary in nature, that meet the definition of a qualifying event.
The following are not permitted on the Veterans Event Calendar: commercial, private, political or religious advertising; private, commercial or for-profit events; partisan political events; cause or opinion-based activities which are deemed inappropriate for city support; discriminate, hostile, or extremist activities; fundraisers that do not directly support Veteran specific causes.
Veterans Event Calendar requests should be submitted online no later than the 15th of the month prior to the event. For example, a request to advertise an event taking place in December should be submitted by November 15. Events submitted after that date may or may not be posted.
Submitting an event for the Veterans Event Calendar does not mean that other necessary city resources (such as permits, police, and road closures) are being handled. Organizers should contact the appropriate city departments for more information.
Events submitted to the calendar known to contain any form of the following shall not be posted or shall be removed:
