Showing an event's category(ies) on the list view of events.

I want my list of events to include (along with title, venue, etc) which categories are assigned to it. Right now I’m using event_list_display to override the display of these but I don’t see anywhere to display categories associated with the event. We need this for our users because sometimes they choose events based on what category they are in.

You can use this shortcode in the template to display the category associated with the event

<?php echo do_shortcode('[CATEGORY_NAME event_id="'.$event_id.'"]');?>

Thank you! It looks like I now have control over displaying the categories that the event belongs to in the list view for events.
