Stir Events

All you have to do is show up…

STIR events are designed for busy people who want to do interesting things and meet others along the way. It’s pretty simple.  Because we’re powered by Match, we have a sense of where our members are, what they’re looking for and what they like to do. Take a look at any one of our event listings and you’ll see the time, the location, a description and the price of admission. But what you may not see is how we work with our event partners to figure out how to make the event different and special for Match members. We’re planning and preparing things on our end because we want you to have a great time and take full advantage of your time on Match. And all you have to do it show up.

Find out the latest Stir events happening in your neighborhood by signing onto your account today.
