About Us

John Benus, our Editor & Publisher, alias “The Fun Doctor” created the World’s First Color Coded What’s Happening Calendar in 2003. This unique color coded system enables you to quickly and easily locate festivals and events close to home and beyond.

  • Our Mission – To help people have more fun plus save time and money.
  • Our Slogan – Drop the mouse and get out of the house
  • Important – All Festivals and events were selected and never pay to be included.

It literally takes over 3 months of emails, faxes, phone calls and follow-up to accurately select, sort and finalize what you’re about to receive.

We're proud to include over 150 Non Profit "Fun" Fundraising Events that help support local schools and other organizations.

The Team of What’s Happening Calendars would like to thank you for your order. We invite you to send us any comments or suggestions to improve future calendars to:
