Ready. Set. Import.

Want to fill your calendar with all the latest happenings? Event Aggregator imports events using feeds from your favorite sources across the web.

Manage all of your event imports right from your WordPress dashboard. Whether you’ve set up scheduled imports that run automatically or you’re running a one-time import, you’ll be able to preview multiple events, choose specific ones to import (or all of them!), add a category, and set the publishing status with a few quick clicks. You can even take it a step further and refine your import feed by date, location, or keyword. No matter how you configure it, you’ve got full control.

Since Event Aggregator relies on third party services, we deal with occasional outages from event sources. You can always check our status page for the latest information.

Bonus! Since Event Aggregator is an add-on service for The Events Calendar, there are no extra plugins to download or maintain.

Struggling to get everyone on the same system for events? Event Aggregator bypasses that barrier by allowing you to pull events from multiple sources, even if those calendars aren’t set up on WordPress. Now you can create a master calendar with a few swift clicks – no complicated migration or tedious copy/paste required.

Many Sources, One Service

  • Eventbrite
  • Meetup
  • iCal
  • Google Calendar
  • Other URLs

Seamlessly add events from Eventbrite.com to your calendar. With Event Aggregator scheduled imports, your WordPress calendar stays in sync with any changes made on Eventbrite, so the most up-to-date information is always available for your visitors.

Import events one at a time using the event’s unique URL, or go wild importing as many events as you want! You can set up import feeds from specific organizer profiles. No matter which type of import you set up, you’ll have a chance to preview the events and cherry pick the ones you really want to add to your calendar.

Whether you’re running scheduled imports or doing a one-time manual import, you’ll have the option to apply a category to all events as they’re added to your calendar. You can also choose to publish imported events right away or set them to pending review for even more control over which events are added to your calendar.


With 258,000 groups in 178 countries, over 625,000 events are posted each month on Meetup.com. That’s a big pool of events to choose from and present on your calendar.

Event Aggregator makes it easy to curate and import events from your favorite Meetup groups. Upcoming events can be imported at the group level or by using a single event URL. With our smart sync feature, you can grab updates from the original event source without duplicating events on your calendar.


Many sites across the web publish their events in an iCal or ICS format, making them easy to import into your events calendar. But there are some pretty big places that don’t – Eventbrite, Meetup, and Google Calendars, to name a few.

By incorporating the tried & true features of our (now retired) iCal Importer plugin and completely refactoring the code to include additional features, we’re able to provide a better, more stable service for our users. Even if you’re only using the iCal import features for now, Event Aggregator gives you the flexibility to add those extra import sources when you’re ready without needing to purchase an extra plugin – everything’s already baked into the service.

Google Calendar

Easily display events from any public Google Calendar on your WordPress website. With Event Aggregator, there’s no need to recreate events in WordPress—just keep on managing them in Google Calendar and let our import service do the rest.

Event Aggregator makes it easy to combine multiple Google Calendars into one centralized display on your site. Pull in as many calendar feeds as you wish and filter them as needed. When your imports run, your WordPress calendar will automatically update with the latest and greatest info based on your Event Update Authority settings.

Google Calendar
Other URLs

Using “Other URL” as your import source, you can quickly grab event data from other websites across the web without hunting for an iCal feed.

This feature currently works to import data by URL from over 150,000 sites running The Events Calendar version 4.5 or higher. When importing events from these sites, Event Aggregator is able to pull in data from all of our standard plugin fields, including featured images, venues, and even event settings.

Import by URL support for other websites and platforms is in the works. In the meantime, you can continue using Event Aggregator to import events from most sites across the web using iCal as the import source.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are any other plugins required?

Nope, no additional plugins are needed.

As long as you’re running a WordPress site with The Events Calendar installed (version 4.3 or later), you’ll be able to purchase and use the Event Aggregator service.

What’s the difference between an import & an event?

An import is the process of bringing event data from an outside source into your calendar. Events are the result of this process.

When a calendar listing is imported into The Events Calendar, a new event is created on your site using the data from the original listing.

How do the event import limits work?

There is no limit to the number of events you can fetch during each import; however, there is a limit on the number of imports you can run each day depending on your license level.

If you’re running a once-daily import from two Eventbrite organizer URLs and one Meetup group, that counts as three total imports, regardless of the number of events published to your site.

Worth noting – if you use the same license key on multiple sites, all imports run by those sites combined will count towards your daily import limit.

Can I schedule ICS or CSV imports?

Scheduled imports are not available for ICS or CSV files uploads. ICS and CSV files need to be manually uploaded.

Can I import events from anywhere?

You can import events from most sites across the web – even if they’re not using WordPress! Event Aggregator currently supports imports from Eventbrite, Meetup, Google Calendar, iCalendar, and ICS. CSV imports (included with The Events Calendar) can be imported as a manual upload.

Event Aggregator also supports importing by URL from other sites running The Events Calendar plugin, including all standard fields and individual event settings.

As long as a site is providing their calendar data in a standardized iCal or ICS format, Event Aggregator should be able to import events from that site. If a site is not providing their calendar data that way, you may need to use an alternate tool like our Eventbrite Tickets plugin.

Recurrence support

If you are going to be using Events Calendar PRO on your site it’s worth noting that while Event Aggregator can import recurring events, once imported they will become standalone, single events—rather than a connected series of events.
