Our readers spoke and we listened: the brand new Uwishunu Events Calendar(!) user interface allows you to search for events by day, view events by location, subscribe to events in your calendar and much more.
Our readers spoke… and we listened.
Here at Uwishunu, we strive to make finding things to see and do in Philadelphia easy and fun.
From major festivals, blockbuster exhibitions and seasonal guides to restaurant openings, shopping events and neighborhood happenings, plus our ever popular Weekend Picks, and everything in between — we want to give you the full scoop on how you can fill your days and your nights (and your weekends) with some of Philadelphia’s best events and activities.
But one of the most frequent pieces of feedback we receive is the inability to search happenings by date.
Today, we’re super excited to be unveiling the brand new Uwishunu Events Calendar, your all-in-one resource for planning mornings, afternoons, nights and weekends in Philadelphia.
Planning a fun Saturday with a group of friends? Trying to nail down a night out with your visiting parents? Looking for a great date night agenda? You’ve come to the right place.
The Uwishunu Events Calendar, a permanent fixture on uwishunu.com as of today, lets you search for what’s going down in Philadelphia on any day of the week, either this week or a week coming up in the near future. You’ll find it in the sidebar of the site, no matter what page you’re on.
Below are some quick tips on how to use it:
1. Main Events Calendar Page: This is the calendar home. Get to it by going to uwishunu.com/events or by clicking the “View Full Calendar” link under the calendar on the blog’s sidebar. On this page (see image above) you’ll see a grid of the next seven days (starting with today) and be able to scroll ahead to whatever day you’re looking for in the future and then click through for that day’s full listings of events that Uwishunu has posted about to date.
2. Listings of Events By Day: The main calendar page provides a teaser of what’s happening in Philadelphia in the coming week, but if you want to drill down to a specific day, just click on it and you’ll get to a page that lists out the posts we have for that day (see image below).
3. Map View of Listings of Events By Day: Prefer to see the events by location? We have that covered. On the top of any calendar day page, tab over to Event Map to see all of that day’s events in geographical format.
4. Events Calendar Sidebar Tool: Wherever you are on uwishunu.com, you can always find the calendar on the sidebar of the site at the very top. Page forward to future weeks and months, or click any date to find more events.
5. Events Calendar Subscriptions: Bonus (!) You can also subscribe to either the entire Uwishunu Events Calendar, or a specific event, using your Google Calendar, iCal or Outlook. More Uwishunu, more often.
Here's a look at the Events by Day page, which will let you see what's happening on any given day — as long as Uwishunu has posted about it — either in a list view or a map view.
Just note that we’re soft-launching the Events Calendar functionality today in order to help you navigate the crazy amount of events going on leading up to the holidays, so please bear with us through any hiccups.
*Also, note that this Events Calendar only features “events” that Uwishunu has posted about. This is not meant to be a comprehensive listing of every single event happening in Philadelphia; this is more a tool to help our readers navigate the great amount of events that we already cover here on Uwishunu.
And please let us know what you think. We’d love to hear your feedback — email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or let us know what you think in the comments.
And in the meantime, bookmark it, tweet it, like it, pin it.
