What’s Going On In McPherson County?
Find out in the Community Calendar of Events!
McPherson is a place where you can never say “there’s nothing to do.” If you follow the Community Calendar of Events that is published weekly in each of the McPherson newspapers, or listen to the McPherson radio station you will hear events going on almost each and every day! The McPherson Chamber of Commerce compiles the Community Events Calendar weekly to keep the residents of McPherson County aware of everything that is going on. We also post the events online at www.mcphersonks.org and www.mcphersonchamber.org so you can access the information when you’re out and about 24/7.
The McPherson Chamber would love to help promote your event, but we do have some guidelines as to what we can include in the calendar. Your event must be for a non-profit organization or a benefit/fundraiser to help a community member. When you submit information, please be brief. We use the 4-Ws … who, what, when, and where. If there is a cost, please include that in your information.
Our deadline for accepting events to be published in Saturday’s paper is noon on Thursdays. The information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the McPherson Chamber office at 620-241.3303. Please include a contact number in case we need to clarify some of the information.
We try our best to include every event we receive, and we get a lot of them. For example, if you were to look at the McPherson Community Calendar for Saturday, April 20th you’d find the following happening: a 5K run to raise money for an Ag Scholarship, an American Legion Auxiliary Breakfast in Canton, a Volunteer Plant a Tree Day, and FOUR Easter egg hunts (2 in McPherson, 1 in Marquette, 1 in Moundridge)! We definitely have a variety of activities! If you are involved with a non-profit organization with an event happening, please let us know. We’d love to add it to the Community Calendar of Events so everyone will know about it. Just email us. It’s that easy!
