The Lansing Journal adds Events feature


Local listings could benefit residents, organizations, and The Lansing Journal

by Melanie Jongsma, Managing Editor

LANSING, Ill. (January 31, 2021) – We’re experimenting with a new Local Events feature that will make it easy for people to find things to do in Lansing and the surrounding region. We hope the feature will also provide another way for organizers to promote their events.

And, to be honest, we hope it will generate some revenue for The Lansing Journal as well.

The listings can be filtered by category and date. Lansing events are given priority, but the list includes published events throughout Chicagoland and northwest Indiana.

We’d like your input

Survey: Local Events feature

(That is, how likely are you to use it to find something to do locally, for yourself, your family, or out-of-town guests?)
(That is, how likely are you to use it to promote an event you are hosting or sponsoring?)
(Paying for services like this helps support your local newspaper.)
(Your sponsorship would help support your local newspaper, and it would include an ad at the top of the Local Events page.)
