Listings appear alongside listings of events selected by Culturekiosque editors, and are indexed to appear alongside our listings in calendar and web site searches.  Sponsored listings are, however, marked clearly as such to distinguish them from editorial listings, with the name of a sponsor and a link to a Web page of the sponsor's choosing.
