Why are community events Important?

Community Events are short-term events organised by a community or its representatives to raise its profile and accessibility.

These types of events are of civic, political, public, or educational nature and are open to the people.

Some common examples of such events are circuses, fundraisers, city festivals, or approved public gatherings.

Most communities sponsor such events not just to raise their profiles or accessibility but also to celebrate holidays, promote community networking, raise funds for the community, etc.
