Using Venues for Related Events

The Related Events feature of Events Calendar Pro allows you to display additional upcoming events on your single events pages, based on the event category. If you're not using event categories or simply find it more useful to show your users other events happening at the same venue, this snippet is here to help!
function tribe_modify_related_posts_args ( $args ) {
	$venue_id = tribe_get_venue_id();
	if ( $venue_id ) {
		unset( $args['tax_query'] );
		$args['meta_query'] = array(
			'relation' => 'AND',
				'key' => '_EventVenueID',
				'value' => $venue_id,
				'compare' => '=',

	return $args;
add_filter( 'tribe_related_posts_args', 'tribe_modify_related_posts_args' );
Add this to the functions.php file of your child theme, and voila! Your Related Events section will now display upcoming events by venue.
