    I´m using sitefinity 8.2 version in a MVC aplication where I have created two custom fields in Events built-in module.

    When I bring a detailed single event I can see all its properties including the image etc.

    But after I try all possible tutorials to bring the custom fields that I have created it always returns null.

    For example:

    EventsManager eventsManager = EventsManager.GetManager();
    Event item = eventsManager.GetEvents().Where(ev => ev.UrlName == itemName).FirstOrDefault(); // it works and bring the single item

    How can I query the two custom fields created ?

    Manually add
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Model;
    to make available the extension methods GetValue and SetValue extension methods.

    Get the custom fields like this
    EventsManager eventsManager = EventsManager.GetManager();
               Event item = eventsManager.GetEvents().Where(ev => ev.GetValue<decimal>("VisitorsCount") == 12).FirstOrDefault();
               var testFieldvalue = item.GetValue("Testfield");
               item.SetValue("TestField", "new value");
