How to manage UPCOMING EVENTS widget in the Public Institutions WordPress theme?
The Public Institutions demo site displays a section with upcoming events. For that, we are using a WordPress widget.

Our example includes a title, link to all events and three events.

The installed plugin you can find in the WordPress dashboard. Navigate to “Events” icon, open it, and you will see the list of created events.
Of course, you can add new events, create event categories, manage tags, venues and use more options.
Created events that are available on the list can be displayed on the front page using the widget.
Manage the Events List Widget
Go to “Appearance” -> “Widgets” and find the “Event list” widget on the list.
