Summary/Abstract: Calendars of events are extremely useful in the field of tourism; such volumes are published more and more often. Related to them, some questions can be formulated: How important is the calendar for a community? How representative and how comprehensive can they be? Does it contain accurate and up-to-date data? How useful is it? The calendar of Hungarian events in Transylvania is an important publication for many. The analysis shows that DAHR (UDMR) as well as its county, local, women's and youth organizations organize many events. Most, almost two-thirds of the events, are organized by local NGOs. The analysis shows that in communities where the local weight of Hungarians is small, in so-called ethnospora situations, most events are organized by the NGOs. From a territorial point of view, there are significant differences, some counties have many events, others only a few. The approx. 50% of the events are cultural or predominantly cultural. Scientific conferences organized by universities hardly fit into the calendar. Finally, we know the number of events presented by the calendar, this in itself is neither many nor few. The fact is that a lot of organizations do not send their event dates to the call, probably about half of the realistic number of events that are included in the calendar.
