Post Your Events and Announcements on Patch

We're so user-friendly, you can post your own content to Patch.

Your Event: Our Calendar

Have something going on that you would like people to know about? A fundraiser? A race? A school or athletic event? A book sale?

Let us and everyone else know about it. It’s very easy to post information about your event on your Mountain View Patch site.  

Here’s how to do it.

  • Find the "Post an Event" beneath the comment stream on the homepage.
  • Click on that and just fill in the boxes, section by section. Give your event a title, then tab down to the time and date, then to the location box. If your event is potentially of interest in nearby communities, click the boxes for those sites, too.
  • Write a brief description and then just a few more tabs to tell people what kind of event it is (sporting, arts, etc.) and how much it costs, and then tab down to the bottom of the page where it says "post my event." Click and you are done. The event is posted. 

How many times have you learned about something the day after it happened and thought, "if only I had known." Let’s work together to make sure we all know about the events and activities that are coming up in our community. 

Get word out about your event and help us make the Mountain View Patch calendar even richer. There’s a lot going on in our towns and communities, and if it is of interest to you, it’s bound to be of interest to someone else as well.

So share your news. As much as we wish we did, we don’t know about everything, so please join with us to make our Mountain View Patch calendar a more vibrant community tool.

Your News: Your Announcements

And while we’re at it, we invite you to post announcements as well.

Announcements are for things other than a particular event—if you want to tell about someone’s accomplishment, or if there is extended signup for a course or a team or anything else that doesn’t quite fit into the category of an event. 

It’s just as easy.

  • Go to the News header, second from the left, and tab down to announcements.
  • Click on announcements, and when you do, you will see a tab with a green plus sign in the upper right-hand corner. Click on that, and you will get to your announcement page. Just like posting an event, all you have to do is follow the prompts.

We look forward to hearing from you more often in the days, weeks and months ahead.

there are cities and towns outside of the bay area where there is no patch to post your info onto. just go ahead and communicate on the patch and hope that somebody sees or pays attention to the points you are trying to get across
