Local Events

To submit calendar items on local events for the print edition, send them to calendar@altamontenterprise.com by Monday at noon for publication the following Thursday.

The Community Calendar gives preference to events of general interest within our coverage area — Guilderland, New Scotland, and the Helderberg Hilltowns — run by not-for-profit organizations. (Special-interest events, such as church services, are published, as space permits, under their own headings.)

Events run, listed by date, free of charge and are edited for the print edition to include the basics.
