Community Calendar

by Access Fort Wayne | Aug 19, 2015

The Community Calendar airs on both Access 1 and Access 2 between programs and at night. It is also aired every day at 4pm on Access 1 (Comcast cable channel 55, Verizon FiOS channel 25) and at 3pm on Access 2 (Comcast cable channel 57, Verizon FiOS channel 27). The messages run on a continuous loop. There are 80+ thousand Comcast cable & Verizon FiOS subscribers in Allen County, so 80+ thousand people are able to see the Community Calendar messages. Neither cable subscribers outside Allen County nor those who subscribe to a satellite dish will receive public access channels. Jazz music accompanies the messages. 

Guidelines for submitting a message:

    - It MUST be on a Message Request Form
    - An authorizing signature is required. 
    - The Community Calendar is for non-profit purposes ONLY. We do not list job openings. We do not list prices or prices of tickets/admission for non-profit events.
    - We CAN indicate: "FREE" or "for ticket info..." 

    Get your messages in early! Please allow at least 1 week before the date you want your message to BEGIN airing. Our Operations Assistant needs the lead-time!

Community Calendar Service: Frequently Asked Questions

What information should I include?
  • What is taking place (a bake sale)
  • Where is it (1st Church of God, 123 Main)
  • When is it (Sunday 01/01/01, 9am to 3pm)
  • Who is it for (benefiting?)
  • Who is invited?
  • How does the public find out more? (include a phone number or website)
  • Why?
Remember, space is limited to the size of the television screen. This means you may need to leave out some of the least important information. Stick to the basics; if there is too much information, your message will be edited down. 

Can I include a picture? 

Yes! You can E-mail it or snail-mail it. Don't fax it! Fax pictures are not clear. Please, make it no bigger than an 8x11 and no smaller than 4x4. If you are sending it via E-mail, make it a JPEG, GIF or BMP, no larger that 800 X 600 pixels and no smaller than 200 X 200 at 72 DPI.

How long will my message air?

Thirty days is the guideline. If you want your message to run longer, please contact our Operations Assistant
