Since 2009, Happenings Media has celebrated and shared everything unique, inspiring, and happening in local communities. It is our mission to tell the stories of locals, from businesses to artisans, charities to community organizations, and help people realize the sometimes hidden and underestimated value in local. We create and share content centered around the lifestyle, from food to fashion, to beauty to business. We support local philanthropic endeavors and shine the spotlight on our region’s incredible pool of unique personalities and local leaders. We create impact for our partners through storytelling in all its forms, with a focus on digital media, social media, and experiential.

My team and I strive to deliver valuable information to our readers, engaging and exciting events, and valuable insight to local business partners. In the fast and ever-changing world of technology, we strive to continue to deliver innovation for our partners.

We hope you will consider joining our AccessPass program. Is it right for you? If you would benefit from exposure to the Happenings audience (over a half a million monthly) through a variety of mediums (website, social media, events, email) and are interested in a community of like-minded small businesses, join us in AccessPass!
