This feature is no longer supported as of December 2019. Instead, you can use the fully-supported Eventbrite block.

Eventbrite is the world’s premier event hosting platform, allowing users to manage ticketing and more from a convenient online dashboard. In just a few steps, your events can be displayed right in your WordPress.com site!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Note: Some of the instructions from this guide are referring to the WP Admin dashboard. You can get to this dashboard by adding /wp-admin to the end of your site’s url (e.g.: example.wordpress.com/wp-admin)

  1. Go to the Sharing tab on WordPress.com, select your site, and click the Connect button next to the Eventbrite option.
  2. A window will open up prompting you to log in to eventbrite.com.
  3. Once logged in, you’ll be asked to authenticate WordPress.com with your Eventbrite account, by pressing the big green “Allow” button.
  4. After a moment, you will see a green message at the top of the Sharing screen saying “The Eventbrite account was successfully connected.” Great!
  5. From My Sites → Pages, choose a page to display your Eventbrite events (or create a new one).
  6. In WP-admin, Assign the Eventbrite Events page template to it. (Note: this must be done using the Classic Editor accessible via WP Admin)
  7. Your events will now display on that page, with the same design as your blog posts.

Detailed View

By clicking on the title or event logo, users can see more details about your event, as if they’re going to the single view of a post. Clicking on the Details link again will take users straight to the eventbrite.com page for your event.

Venues and Organizers

Do you have multiple venues or organizers on your Eventbrite account? Events can now be filtered by venue or organizer, acting just like categories or tags for your posts.

  • Events can currently be added only to pages at the root of your site (like yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/events), not child pages (like yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/stuff/events).
  • Only public, live events will be displayed on your Eventbrite page. If events are over, or marked private, they will not be shown.
  • Only one Eventbrite account can be active per WordPress.com site. If you only have one Eventbrite account, you can connect it to as many WordPress.com sites as you like.
  • For users with multiple Eventbrite accounts, you can connect them to your WordPress.com sites individually, but please note that if you’re having trouble connecting an Eventbrite account that is being used across multiple sites, it’s best to disconnect that Eventbrite account from all sites first and then reconnecting.
  • It could take a few minutes (up to 10 minutes) for new events to appear on your WordPress.com page.
