I have attended many events that were relevanted to the community, including chat groups and dinner club.

Q1: Should I use "are" instead of "were" in the sentence?

Q2: Should I use more than three events as examples after the word "including" ?
I have attended many events that are relevanted to the community, including chat groups, dinner club and XX .

Q3: are there any other grammatical errors in the sentence?

Thanks for your help.

Relevanted” is not a word.  I will assume that you mean relevant, meaning that it is pertinent to the community. 

 

Choosing between are and were depends on the facts at hand.  If the events are still relevant, then use are (present tense).  If they were relevant when you attended, but no longer are, then use were (past tense)

 

You may use as many examples as you would like.  You could end the sentence after chat groups and have only one example.
