While you can organize your content based on content types and content authors, you may also want to organize or view content based on what the content is about or what it pertains to.
For example, let's say you have 3 locations and events happening in all those 3 locations. Visitors to your site may not want to look through your entire calendar at events across all of those locations; they may want to see only the ones happening close to them. What you want is a way to categorize your events by location, and allow your visitors to filter the events by location.
Taxonomy allows you to associate descriptive terms with your content, which can be used to organize and display the content on your site. Each set of taxonomy terms is part of a category called a vocabulary. Terms in vocabularies can be further broken down into sub-terms.
Vocabulary - 'Event Type'
Navigate to: Structure > Taxonomy > Add Vocabulary
Repeat steps 5 & 6 until all terms have been added.
Navigate to: Structure > Content Types > Event (or the content type of your choice > Manage Fields
Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Event (or content of your choice)
(For already existing nodes you can navigate to ‘Content’ and edit the appropriate selection to include a ‘Taxonomy’ term - step 6).
There are several available fields for you to utilize to create the content of your page:
Now when you view the page, you should see the selected vocabulary terms displayed towards the bottom of the page. By selecting a term, the visitor will be provided a list of all other events under the same category.

The Drupal default is to display taxonomy terms stacked; if you have content with more than one taxonomy term selected, each will be displayed vertically - one on top of the other. If you would prefer to display taxonomy terms 'inline' (or horizontally) an ABA staff member can enable the required modules for you to do so.
