Guidelines for Usage ~ Community What’s On in Beechworth Calendar

Quercus Beechworth is delighted to present the “What’s on in Beechworth” calendar to our local community. The calendar, located on the Quercus Beechworth website, is the ‘go to’ place where any community group or individual can post an event, class, or activity, free of charge for the whole community to see. It will offer an opportunity for the community to know what is going on in Beechworth and when.

The  What’s on in Beechworth calendar will complement the very popular Beechworth Community Facebook page, the Indigo Shire website, the Beechworth Chamber of Commerce and the What’s On column in the Ovens and Murray Advertiser.
