Create a stunning, time-saving Facebook event cover

The easiest way to publicize an event is through an online platform like Facebook events (it has 1.49 billion users and counting!). What’s not so easy is everything else that comes with creating an event. And chances are, you’re coordinating the whole thing yourself. Between juggling meetings, coordinating the budget, and finalizing details, among others.

With Canva’s ready-to-use templates and easy-to-use editor, that Facebook event cover is a cinch to make. Simply select a template that embodies your event and play around with the design elements according to the branding and details that need to go in your event cover. Before you know it, you’re Facebook event cover is ready to make your page a smashing success.

Add a touch of personality or on-brand identity to your Facebook event cover by uploading your own images

Lend your layout its own brand of distinctiveness by fusing it with your brand elements and colors. If it’s a personal event, you can make instant connections by using photos that your attendees will no doubt recognize. Our constantly updated library of stock photos, icons, and many other design elements will come to the rescue if you’re in need of more choices.

Any of the tabs on the editor’s left-hand menu will take you to a world of designing possibilities. Jump from browsing images, uploading your own photos, or selecting fonts with just a few quick clicks!

Share that awesome Facebook event cover on all your digital properties

The final step will decide how effective your Facebook event cover truly is: Download your design in stunning high resolution and load it up on your event page. Click on the Download button and voila, your design work is done!

If your design contains all your event details and can function as a standalone invite, you might want to share it on all your digital properties as well. On the menu bar, you will find a share button that allows you to post, tweet, or send your Facebook event cover to your mailing list. Instant event announcement!


At a minimum, your Facebook event cover photo size should be 1200 x 628 pixels, or a 1.91:1 ratio. To make sure it displays well on a retina screen, go for 1920 x 1005. Make the job easier by using a Facebook event cover photo template.

Using a video for your Facebook event cover is easier than it sounds. Simply click the camera icon on your cover and upload the video the same way you would a photo. You can choose to upload a new video or choose one from your library.

Be sure to keep dimensions in mind when creating a Facebook event cover. Your event cover will be different in size from a personal or business page header photo or a Facebook group cover photo. Your event cover should fit the theme of your event and draw people in.
