Background information about the Albion calendar above
This calendar began with a few events that are related to Cascarelli’s of Albion, Albion Heritage, and a few Albion College events that might be of interest to those who are visiting Albion. Now we are syncing with all events listed in the printed General Guide to Albion. There is also a website with links to more information about the events listed.
Links to the best information can be found here
http://www.albionmich.net/general (this is the newer mobile friendly General Guide website that you are on now.)
(this is the older General Guide website that goes back years)
We will also be posting more info on how you can sync this calendar, and others, to your own google calendar, and other calendars such as Outlook. For apple devices, consider getting the app Sunrise, that is the only iOS app that is currently pushing for the Google calendar platform. The benefits of google calendar is that it is web based and cross platform. More info coming soon.
For official Albion calendars, and more complete events, see the section below. (Please post YOUR events to the Albion e-calendar, see the section below.) To sync the Albion Tourism Events Calendar with your own calendar, click the Google+ link in the lower right of the calendar below.
- Albion e-Calendar for community events (post your events here!)

Clues to using the Albion Google Calendar.
Anyone can see the calendar.
To sync the calendar to your own digital calendar, click the Google+ button in the lower right corner.
You will have the option to include other calendars that are shown here:
- Earth events, such as the Equinox,
- National Holidays (these might already be on your calendar),
- National Observances (think St. Patrick’s Day)
- and more.
- We will add information on how to include weather soon.
To get your own digital calendar so you can start to plan your own schedule the new way, we suggest Google calendars. First create a gmail account and log in to that. Google calendars are based in the web, unlike Outlook and iCalendar, that are more resource intensive. They can be grouped together like the calendar above.
You can create a free Google Calendar for your own organization complete with annual repeating events and links to the best information on your website like we have done here. It’s a good idea to create a complete calendar, but also a “LITE” version with a few really big events so people don’t turn off your calendar with too many dates.
An example would be a Google Calendar for College Theatre Events, College Sports events, College Music events, and one combined. The pieces all work together.
Others can then sync to your calendar and we will post community wide calendars here with directions. Later we will post links to the best information on how to create and sync calendars. It isn’t that difficult, if you follow the directions. It was FINDING the directions that was a bit hard.
