How to Make Hosts of Events on Facebook

As the host of a Facebook event, you can edit the event's details and invite people to attend it. You can also add other hosts. Use the Edit button on the event page to add hosts. You can only add hosts to an event using the Facebook website. The official Facebook app for mobile devices does not offer this functionality, as of publication.
