We want to promote your event, sale, or whatever is happening at your Downtown Ventura business or location in our weekly newsletter or on our Events Page. At this time, our focus is solely on events in the immediate Downtown Ventura area only.

Our Downtown Ventura newsletter goes out on Thursdays, unless there’s a holiday. All submissions for the week’s newsletter are due no later than 8pm on Tuesday of that week. 

To submit an event for consideration, please email the following to megan@downtownventura.org:

1. An image that coordinates with your event. Square images are preferred at minimum size of 800×800. If your event is re-occurring, one image for all events is all we need.

2. A link to your event. If a link to your specific event does not exist, please provide either a website, Facebook, or Instagram link we can use. If your event involves other businesses or organizations, please include those links too.

3. A written description of the event typed in the body of your email. (Text will be copied and pasted onto our website and newsletter to prevent any errors. We cannot copy text from your image.) Write-up should include details such as:

  • Date(s) and time(s)
  • Location
  • Cost
  • Any restrictions or specifics

Example write-up for an event submission: 

Ventura Botanical Gardens, 567 S. Poli St., welcomes you this Saturday, from 9am to 5pm for free in honor of National Arbor Week and Arbor Day. Bring your family and friends to the Gardens. Dogs are welcome to come too!

Feel free to copy and paste this example and substitute with your event details.
