Users utilize online maps to search for places as well as events of interest. Current map services are primarily focused on place results and have limited capabilities to return events that match user queries. This disclosure describes techniques to determine query intent and searching for matching places, events, and web results. The matching results are filtered to selectively display places, events, or both events and places, based on the determined query intent. A carousel of events is provided in the results user interface. The prominence of the carousel is determined based on the confidence that the query is for events.
