Events should be submitted no less than six weeks before they begin, and submissions should include a vender application as well.

Submissions sent in may or may not be posted on this calendar depending upon my time, my mood, the odd quirks in the server and for just about any other reason under the sun.

If you wish to yell at me for not having an event listed, a problem with an event listing, etc., the fee is $75 per hour, three hours minimum, payable in advance.

Please note - dates, times, etc are outside of my control. A powwow can be cancelled for nearly any reason, including weather. Information numbers are included and should be used for more information. E-mailing me about vendor applications, complaints, directions, etc will likely be ignored. I do not run these events, I only list them. I will be at the events that have OCB Will Be There listed on them, and possibly other events as well. Feel free to stop by and thank me if you'd like.
