Set up a single event with multiple dates or times

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Cortney N

If your event has multiple dates or times with different offerings for each, create a single event with one start date and one end date. Then, create a ticket type for each date or time slot. Hide the start and end date of the overall event to make sure the correct date shows on printed tickets.

<h2 id="01">Basic info</h2> <h3 id="01-1">1. Click &quot;Create Event&quot;.</h3> <p>eblink{Log in=&gt; target=_blank} to your Eventbrite account and select &quot;Create Event&quot;.</p> <h3 id="01-2">2. Enter the details under &quot;Basic info&quot;.</h3> <ul><li>Event Title — Give your event a short, distinct name up to 75 characters long.</li><li>Type — Choose a type that describes your event, like a class or a party. For public events, this helps attendees find your event. • Category — Choose a category that matches your event, like fashion or food. For public events, this helps attendees find your event.</li><li>Sub-category — Choose a sub-category that further describes your event. This option is only available for U.S. events at this time.</li><li>Tags — Use keywords that you think your attendees will search for when looking for your event. Event tags that appear on your event listing are based on your event location, type, category, and sub-category. • Organizer — Select one of your organizers. To add or update an organizer, you need to update the specific Organizer Profile.</li></ul> <h3 id="01-3">3. Choose a location.</h3> <p>An event can only have one location entered in the “Location” field. If your event has multiple locations within the same city, just enter the city and specify the different locations in your description and your ticket types. If your event takes place in multiple cities, you should create a separate event page for each location instead.</p> <ul><li>Venue — Use the search bar below &quot;Venue&quot; to search for a venue, address, or city.</li><li>Online event — Use for events that happen online only.</li><li>To be announced — If you&#39;re not sure about your location yet, choose this setting.</li></ul> <h3 id="01-4">4. Select a date and time.</h3> <p>Choose “Single event”. Then enter the first date of your event under &quot;Event starts&quot; and the last date of your event under &quot;Event ends&quot;. You’ll create separate tickets later to represent each date your event occurs. If you need to set up an event with the same location and same offerings for each date, go to eblink{this article=&gt;} instead.<br><br>Then hide the event start and end times by unchecking the boxes next to those options. This way, your event shows the timeframe of when the event is taking place. The individual dates will show on tickets instead.</p> <h3 id="01-5">5.
