A NationBuilder calendar lets you list upcoming events, search for nearby events, and display your events on a map.
It sorts events chronologically by default. You can switch it to be by distance, and choose whether or not to show a map. You can include a custom introduction and choose to allow user generated events with sub-menu settings, including assigning a point person to any event creators.
It also includes autoresponse emails. Read more about how to organize events with NationBuilder.

You'll want to fill your calendar with every public appearance your candidate will be involved with - even t.v., radio, and podcast interviews.
It can be a good practice to accept RSVPs even for events that don't require it. This gives you another touch point to gather supporter contact information and will allow you to follow up with people after the event occurs. Equally important, especially for public events, you can keep track of who actually attended the event (often a subset of the RSVPs), by checking people in at Event settings > Attendees.
