This might be of use to some people, depending on what theme you use
(I am using http://www.plaintxt.org/themes/sandbox/) and your settings
(I "Keep Events Separate" and am modifying a separate a template file
for the Calendar category).

In my case, I am using Tags as "regions" for my calendar and I ended
up having to replace this included code that automatically generates
the Tag links in the Sandbox template for WordPress:

<?php the_tags( __( '<span class="tag-links">Region: ', '' ), ", ",
"</span>\n\t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"meta-sep\"></span>\n" ) ?>

...with these lines of code in order to get the generate the Tags and
specifically call Events by appending "&ec3_listing=events" from the
Advanced Queries section

$posttags = get_the_tags();
if ($posttags) {
foreach($posttags as $tag) {
echo '<a href="http://yourdomain.com/wordpressdir/?tag=' . $tag->slug
. '&ec3_listing=events">' . $tag->name . '</a>';

Just thought I would share if anyone else was trying to do a similar thing.
