How the Calendar Works

The Colorado BDSM Community Calendar was established in 2003 to provide a central place for organizations to post their events. We provide the structure… the website, calendar software, and technical support… and the community manages the events.


Every system has its own jargon, and the calendar software is no exception. There are some terms you’ll need to know in order to use the Calendar effectively.

An Organizer is an entity that hosts events. Examples of Organizers are clubz, organizations,  munches, discussion groups, and educational classes.


A Venue is a physical location where an event takes place.


An Event is something that happens at a specific location, at a specific date and time.
