SPREAD THE WORD
First, I appreciate you sharing my site with anyone who benefits. This is a grassroots movement with the barest of funding, no advertising & no staff (except me). Simply put, more users equal more free events for more towns in Southern Maine.
Submit an event when you find one.
Want to collaborate in exchange for an ad? Tell me your ideas.

The Portland Cheat Sheet
Everything Free to Do for All
Hi, I'm Taryn. I designed the Portland Cheat Sheet to connect more people to their community. And by people, I mean myself too.
After years of minimum wage poverty and way too much isolation,
I got tired of saying I'm broke and there's nothing to do, so I took the dream I had for 15 years and developed it to see what would happen.
I do everything around here: calling places every day to verify info, checking over 400 local websites; all the editing, web, marketing, and sales.
Your donations, ads, and grants are my only income for this solo mission. It provides revenue to keep the site going and savings to make the big changes that are coming.
My 5 year plan:
Building a database so events will be searchable by town, date or time. (Happening now-2023! Stay tuned.)
Hiring a graphic designer to spruce up the site.
I'll be expanding free event coverage in over 25 towns in Southern Maine, then adding more towns to the mix.
After one year, we're a tribe of 2000 people monthly who support free events in Southern Maine. Stick with me- let's see what happens together.
Your friend in all things free,
