Note on recurring events (add on required):


After an event’s start date has begun, since it is no longer an upcoming event, it will no longer display in the search results.

The event search results only display events that are upcoming and have not started yet.

To enhance events functionality, consider the auto-recurring events add-on which includes the ability to display events in search results even after their initial start date has begun.


Without the recurring events add on, events with start dates that have already begun will no longer display in search results because they are no longer “upcoming” events (they’ve already started).  With this add-on, even after the event’s start date has begun, as long as the event has another future recurring date, the event will continue to display in the search results of your site - which helps keep your site looking more populated with content.
