Mommy Poppins Event Calendar Listing Policies

The Mommy Poppins Event Calendar is a curated list of the best local family events used by over 100,000 families each week. We only share high quality events that we feel are enriching and valuable experiences. All events are published at the sole discretion of our editors and no submission is guaranteed publication.

All submissions are moderated by our editors to maintain quality and consistency. Paid listings are moderated first and free listings are moderated on a first-come, first-served basis. We receive a high volume of submissions and it’s possible we will not get to all free listing submissions. We recommend submitting at least one week before your event date.

Please read our guidelines carefully for the best chance of having your event published.  For more information on these guidelines and our event calendar please read our FAQ.

Before submitting your listing please search to see if your event is already listed. If your event is in our calendar and you would like to upgrade or feature the listing, please use our contact form to reach us.
