If you have a relatively small event, and you want an effective way to organize it and promote it, Facebook offers their event planning and promotion tools.
If you are serious about running your own event series, you should look into joining meetup.com and promoting your events with SEO from your own site as well. But if you are just starting to put on events, only plan to have one event, or simply just want to promote it to people you know, the Facebook events option makes sense.
Maintaining your events on Facebook gives you an easy way to invite your current friends from your personal Facebook account to your events as well as your Facebook business page members. It also gives you a good way to manage invites and see who will attend.
