Why We Charge for Calendar Listings

We’re here to serve Durham. But our operational costs are genuine, and if we didn’t pay them we would quickly be out of business.

Our staff and contributors are Durhamites, who have developed local expertise over their careers and deserve compensation. We also have server, email, and other recurring software costs.

Like all small, local businesses, we depend on sales and revenue to continue our business. As a business, we’re here to serve our readers and community, our advertisers and clients, and our team members.

We appreciate your grace and understanding.

Please contact us at with any questions or to receive a media kit for expanded promotional opportunities.
