About Hiccup

We have one goal: to help people find new things to do, and new people to do them with. In a world where thousands of things are happening around us every second, we aim to bring forward all actionable things of interest. It's not about the places you go, it's about the things you do and the experiences you have. We bring forward those experiences, locally.

Hiccup gets people together!

For People

We don't go places, we do things. Hiccup is a bird's-eye view of all things new, on rotation, or happening, locally. From happy hours to sporting events, local bands to farmers markets and street festivals, or promotions to tastings - Hiccup covers everything.

Hiccup is great for business!

For Businesses

Hiccup offers a simple way for you to drive foot-traffic to your small business. You'll get complete creative freedom in your event creation, and real-time stats about how you're preforming. The best part is, it doesn't cost you a penny if it doesn't bring people to your store.

Hiccup builds community!

For Community

An engaging, enriched, and connected community is what keeps our local, and macro-economy alive. For our part, we support buying local and encourage intelligent local entrepreneurship by providing smart data that small establishments usually don't have access to, which lets you direct foot-traffic where it's needed.
