New Sponsorship!

We are proud to announce a new sponsorship with THREE great radio stations, which are accessible to Bangor and surrounding areas! Just like Bangor Buzz, they strive to offer a variety of choices for you to choose from! When you feel like listening to some soft-rock contemporary music from the 70’s to the present, then tune in to 93.7 or 94.1 and sit back and enjoy the Wave.  Paul Dupuis, Rick Foster, Michael O’Hara and Delilah are just a few voices from their veteran air staff that look forward to providing news, stories and laughs with you every day. Or maybe you’re feeling a little country, so take a trip over to The Country Road at 1400 AM.  You will enjoy classic songs from Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and many more legends.  This is the only station in Bangor that plays country 24 hours a...

New Tip – Weekly quick look

As the number of events in our calendar grow, we are always looking to find ways to make accessing the information easier.   One feature we have is our weekly events quick look.   It is located on the right hand side of the home page.  Beginning on Sunday, the weeks events will be listed here.  Each day will gray out as it moves through the week.   Because the days have so many events, you will see a link for each day that says “see all (number) events”. This is a quick way to browse through the weeks events.  Remember that by clicking the Calendar link above, you can search all events by day, month, or category. We hope that you enjoy our site.

New events and promotion price sheet

We now have over 2800 events.   Looks like there will be lots to do this month.   Be sure to check out the calendar using the link above.  If you have something you would like to add, send us an email. Remember its always free to list any and all events.  If you would like your events feature on the front page, or advertise your business we have added a new price sheet.  You can find that by clicking here.

103 events added and shortcut tip.

Today, we added 103 new events to the calendar!  That means that even with the expiring events, we still are growing our calendar.  We now have over 2650 events.  Everything from the UPS hiring event on September 19th, to the Traxxas Monster Trucks coming in April, 2017. Remember, the Facebook and Twitter feeds are only for featured and spotlight events and information.  The full calendar is on our website, www.bangorbuzz.com.  Here is a little tip, if you open the website with your phone and save the page to your home screen, you will have instant access to the calendar and news updates.

A big THANK YOU!

We want to take the time to thank you for your support.   We have received so much positive feedback about the site and our contests.  We are over 600 likes on our Facebook page, and in a very short period of time.  We want that number to grow so if you like us, we encourage you to share us with your friends. That being said, our Facebook page is something we want to encourage people to use. However, the website (www.bangorbuzz.com) is where the large calendar is.  If you have not had the opportunity to check it out, please feel free to do so.  We recently added a new filter bar so you can really sift through the 2200+ events and find anything you are looking for.  We will continue to post certain featured events on our Facebook page, but the full calendar is located on our site.

What is all this info on the event listings?

We thought we would take a minute and explain the information you see on our event listings.  Specifically the ones that are on the home page in our featured sections.   You may have noticed that there is a date in small print.  This is the date the event was listed on the calendar.  It is not the date of the event.  The illustration shown here, breaks down the information you see on our listings.  We try to put the date and time of the event in the title, but it may not always make it there if it is a listing added by from the community.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us anytime.    

News update!

We are proud to announce that there are 1500 events in our calendar.  We would love for you to add your own events to our site and remember it is free, so share as many as you like!
