    Please look up words in a dictionary such as this one (do consult multiple dictionaries if the first one doesn't help you) before asking a question about a meaning of a word, and then show us what you've found and how that still doesn't answer your question. – userr2684291 Dec 24 '18 at 15:15

In this case "event" refers to a planned activity, probably some kind of meeting where people came together. This may include people playing music, dancing, giving a presentation or doing exercises (sports).
