Submission Guidelines

Event Flyers

Event flyers published on the District 9 website should satisfy the following guidelines:

    • Description
    • Detailed agenda or schedule (if applicable)
    • Date and start/end time
    • Cost, if any (including cost for early purchase vs. day-of-event purchase)
    • Web site for information and registration (if any)
    • Location name and address (plus website, phone number, email address, and detailed driving directions, if available)
    • Organizer name and contact information (phone number, email address)
