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.
