To Add a page or post to your WordPress website Log into the site as an admin, select Add New from the menu bar on the left under PAGES or POSTS.

When you’re finished with your post or page you can save it as a draft, then review it for errors.  Once satisfied, select publish and your page or post is now live.  There is an option to publish IMMEDIATELY or enter a date and time for your post or page to be published in the future.

WordPress also has a powerful events scheduler plugin which includes a calendar and a tool to schedule events with optional online bookings. Briefly, if there are events stored in the database, WordPress will automatically search for those scheduled events when you visit the website.  If there are events scheduled, they will be triggered.
