EventNett is an events calendar modeled after the openness of Wikipedia. Anyone can add new events or edit existing events without having to log in or provide any personal information. There are no advertisements so you don't have to click through multiple pages or scroll past banner ads in order to view event information. More importantly, there is no central control. A single company or individual doesn't decide what gets listed or what gets prominent placement. Shows at your community theater or drink specials at your neighborhood's corner bar are as important as stadium concerts or wine tastings--all based on what you want to see.
The intention behind EventNett is to allow you to quickly find what you're interested in or to add what you think others might like. EventNett brings events to you with as little intervention as possible.
EventNett was first released at the end of 2006.
If EventNett doesn't fit your needs, you may want to try one of these similar (but completely unafilliated) sites.
When you first open EventNett, it will try to determine your city, state, and zip code from your IP address and then search for events in that area. The default search will display events for the next 7 days in the list view. You can use the search panel to change what events are displayed using event and location information, keywords and categories, or a specific date range.
You have several options for linking to EventNett if you want to bookmark or include EventNett results on your own web site.
