About Us



Clarkstoncalendar.org is a joint project between the Charter Township of Independence, Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce and Clarkston Community Schools.  Started in January 2003, the goal of this online calendar is to provide a user friendly, up-to-date calendar of all community events.  We hope that Clarkstoncalendar.org helps keep our community informed about local events, government meetings and area activities.

Clarkstoncalendar.org is funded by these three partners and does not accept advertising or sell email lists.
