Microsoft has just added another feature to the Windows Phone 8.1 Digital Assistant.

You are no able to set Cortana to alert you to local events, be it food festivals or a local business seminar.

The feature has been added under the Discovery tab, and users are able to narrow down their interest to events such as music, dance, food and drink, community and more.

Microsoft is continuously updating the backend of the Cortana cloud service, which is possible without making any changes to your handset, and we should expect to see even more improvements in the future to make the DA ever more useful.
