Events Happening Now

This extension provides a shortcode that allows you to display events that are currently in progress. It’s a great way to showcase events, — particularly ones that are hosted online — for those who may be joining late and are looking where to go.


  • The Events Calendar (5+)
  • The latest calendar view templates enabled (Events → Settings → Display → “Use updated calendar designs”)


The shortcode can be added to any WordPress page, post, or custom post type. It can also be used multiple times on the same page.

Simple usage:


Using all options:

[tribe-happening-now all_day="yes" category="live" featured="yes" quantity="3" title="Live Events"]
