I manage the Facebook page for an Orchestra, and the plain text format of the event description makes it difficult to create a readable listing. I'd like to be able to use bold, italics, bullets, etc., in the description of these Facebook events. Is there any way to do this (or perhaps even include arbitrary HTML)?

There isn't a way to add formatting to the event description; it does not accept HTML markup. If you have event details that you want formatted in a certain way, I suggest putting the details on a separate web page and pasting the URL into the event description, or post a link on the event's wall. It will open in a separate tab when clicked.

Thanks, I was hoping I'd missed something. –  TomG Apr 10 '12 at 13:41

Yes, there is, just edit it. Click settings and it should say "description format" and click on it and then it should pop up so you can format it the way you want. It should work because I do it on my iPad all the time.

@hellokittyliv550 - using the web client, I don't see "description format" as an option anywhere. Under settings for the event, I have Edit Event, Edit Hosts, Message Guests, Create Repeat Event, Cancel Event, Share, Export, Promote Event. When editing the event, there are no settings options that I see. Can you clarify when you see "description format"? –  TomG Oct 19 '13 at 23:14
