How to Post Your Own Events and Blog (For Free) on Patch

Bookmark this page when you're wondering how to post an event, announcement or blog to Summit Patch.

Keep this article handy each time there is something you'd like to share with our community.


Would you like to post events, announcements and blogs to Summit Patch?

  • To post events to the site for free 
  1. Navigate to the Events page and click “Add an Event” on the right side of the page. 
  2. Write. Tell us all the details about your upcoming event. 
  3. Click “Post my event” at the bottom of the page.

That puts the event directly on our calendar. The end result is the same as if a Patch staffer had posted it for you.

The only difference is, when you post it, it goes up right away. If you send it to us, you might have to wait until we're done reporting on a meeting, photographing an event, meeting with community members, or something else that we Patchers are always doing.


  • To post announcements to the site for free:  
  1. Simply click the Announcement option under the "News" tab near the top of the homepage. 
  2. On the right side of the screen you’ll see the button called “Add an Announcement.” This will take you to Patch’s new announcement form.
  3. Write. Once there, get your brag on and tell the community all about your child's sports league win or your civic club’s new members. When you’re ready, click “publish my announcement” and it will go live to the site immediately.


With just a few clicks, you can tell the town when you get married, have a baby, graduate or make the honor roll.

You can also write a public thank-you, provide details about your group's upcoming event, or ask for volunteers. (We have a whole bunch of categories you can choose for your announcement; you'll see for yourself when you submit one.)

For extra visibility, add a photo. If you email us the link, we can help give you even more exposure through our Facebook and Twitter pages.

  • To blog: 
  1. Simply click the "start a blog" button on our homepage. 
  2. Click "Post on Patch," to the middle left of the page, and fill out the required fields. 
  3. When you're done, hit "save and preview" and then submit it to us. At the chance you receive an error message, ("oops!" is one we see from time to time), just email the editor at Summit@Patch.com to see if we can see the blog on our end. More likely than not, we'll see it in our queue and will be able to click "approve."
