  1. I want to enter the Oakland County Shopper Contest but cannot find the registration form on the internet. Where it it???

  2. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am the media communications volunteer representative for the Huron Valley Council for the Arts and would like to have our arts and humanities events and happenings listed in the Oakland County community calendar. Please let me know the details for submission and the deadlines for publication. We consider inclusion in your calendar an invitation to the public to attend our events and experience the arts in Oakland County. Thank you for your help.
    Sincerely,
    Jennifer Ginther, HVCA

    • Hello Jennifer,

      Thank you for reaching out to us. Would you like to submit events to Oakland County’s Things to Do blog page? If so, please email us at socialmedia@oakgov.com. If that is not what you are requesting, can you please send us a link to the calendar you mentioned, or additional information about it, so we can direct you to the appropriate department?

      • Yes I am interested in posting our events with you. However, there is a date change for the HVCA VanGO Tour to Greenfield Village Holiday Lights-the date should be November 16th not 17th. Please make the appropriate changes. Thank you! Jennifer
