This is an archived WebSchemas proposal Events Schema (update) for schema.org. See Proposals listing for more. Note: active schema.org development is now based at github


This page is about a proposal to update the Event type in schema.org, discussed in the Web Schemas group.

The bulk of the proposal is (currently) in a PDF; see attached file. The proposal comes from the Google teams working with the existing Event markup, and has been checked by the other schema.org partners prior to publication. See PDF for full details of the proposal.

A slightly revised proposal was updated in May 2013, and includes improvements for the repeating events model. A later simplification was posted Oct 1st 2013, removing some of the complex event repetition model.

Event schema.org proposal

(todo: check these, are they acccurate for the 2013 updates)

  • Proposes 3 new properties of Event: eventStatus, previousStartDate, previousEndDate to support canceled or rescheduled events.
  • Adds eventCategory to support categorised events.
  • Encourages use of existing 'url' property (of Thing) to link to associated Web pages.
