If a Facebook event happens over multiple days, you can simply create a recurring event instead of adding a new one every single day. This option is available only for Facebook Pages. If you’re using a personal profile, you cannot use this option. Equally important, you can’t create recurring events using the Facebook Mobile app.
How Do I Create Recurring Events on Facebook?
- Go to your Page
- Click on Events
- Select Create New Event
- Then, select In Person
- Click on Recurring Event
- Set the event frequency: Daily, Weekly, or Custom
- Select Add Time to add the start and end times for your event
- Click on Add again and hit Done to save the event details
- Click on Create Event to publish the event
Once the event has been published, you can’t change the timezone and location. Recurring events can repeat 52 times.
You can now share your event on social media and invite people to check it out. To increase your event’s visibility on Facebook, you can share it with groups. In this manner, the event will show up in the news feed of the group members.
Keep in mind that some admins and moderators don’t let group members share third-party events or promote goods and services.
To check upcoming events, go to your Facebook profile, and click on More. Select Events to list upcoming events in chronological order.
To create recurring events on Facebook, go to your Page and click on Events. Then, add a new event, and click on the Recurring Event button. Set the event frequency (daily, weekly, or custom), add all the details, and publish it.

This article is incorrect. There only recurring event options are None, Daily and Weekly. I need a custom option so I can do monthly!
I have recurring option, but only “never, daily, or weekly” not custom option. Cannot create monthly event
Brendan Noble says
Facebook must have changed their event building layout recently because this is no longer an option
this info is NOT CORRECT. There is NO recurring event button!!! and no custom option

The recurring option doesn’t exsist, it would be so helpful to have this option.
