Promote Your Event On Newark, Ohio Links. It’s Free

I am always happy to add any events in the Newark, Ohio and surrounding areas. Send event information using the contact page and I will post it for you to the Newark, Ohio Events category and it will be included in the event calendar.

I have many of the popular events listed, but it’s tough to stay up-to-date with the poker runs and fundraisers that pop up frequently. I know volunteers put much time and effort into these and it can be costly and time consuming to advertise the events. I am getting frequent hits from searches for these events, so it’s worth your time to submit them here. Newark, Ohio Links is happy to help!

The only reason that the events page was started was out of aggravation with the local newspaper’s coverage. It’s discouraging to see that they have listed things like “$2 drink hours” as “events”. If you have a website with a better events listing than what is found here, feel free to send the link and it will be posted as well. Community garage sales for charity will be be accepted, as well as other charitable flea markets and sales, but non-charitable sales will not. Just about anything that is truly an “event” will be accepted.

Enjoy the links!

The National WACO Club Reunion is well worth the short drive to Wynkoop Airport In Mount Vernon, Ohio.  These historical airplanes are very interesting and fun to watch. It’s hard to pin down the exact times that you will see aerobatics, but if you’re there for any amount of time, you’re sure to see some. Admission is free and there are plenty of things to do in Mount Vernon.

More information is available at The National WACO Club website.
