Upcoming Traditional Events
Most events happening within the next few months have an attached event brochure. Click on the event of interest then click on "more details>>" to display a link for the event's brochure.

Click here for a full page view of the calendar.

Using this Calendar
  • Clicking on an event title displays more information (info) about the event.
  • Notice the event info includes a map link to display the event location in Google Maps.
  • When a calendar entry is an AVA sanctioned event, the event info will typically include a link to event description on the AVA website. Click on "more details>>" to make this link usable.
  • By default, events are displayed below as an agenda; but clicking on the "week" or "month" tabs (right hand corner of the calendar) will display events in a more traditional calendar-like view.
  • This calendar is updated based on AVA sanctioned traditional events in the Atlantic Region: Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Including this Calendar in your personal calendar
The calendar ID for the above calendar is atrd4u@gmail.com This is a public Google calendar. If you use Google as your personal calendar, you may "add" this calendar with the result that the atrd4u calendar events will be displayed in your personal calendar. Also any update to the atrd4u calendar will be reflected in your calendar. You may choose to also configure your personal Google calendar to send you email notifications when a change is made in the atrd4u calendar; but this is only recommended if you want to deal with significant numbers of notification emails.
