What you may not realize, though, is that Eventbrite offers a mobile app that helps keep track of your RSVPs. Once you’ve installed it and logged in, you can use features like canceling your RSVPs or add events to your phone calendar with one click.

Will there be other children close in age with my child at this event?

Don’t forget! If you want to see more activities geared toward your needs- preschoolers, young babies, afternoons, weekends, you name it- we’d love to have some volunteers to help plan them.

How do I cancel my RSVP?

It happens to everyone- the cable guy can ONLY come during the playdate, or you kid wakes up sick and you want to make your spot available to someone on the waiting list.
