It would be nice to have a gadget to list featured events on a page, such as the home page.
A featured event gadget could be used to list one or more selected event for a page, say the home page and allow the ordering of those selected events. Alternatively, a simpler gadget could display one featured event and if I wanted to feature more than one event I could use more instances of the gadget. The information displayed could be similar to the information displayed for an event on the "Upcoming Events" page, i.e., not the full information, but a teaser. A teaser tool, to give control over how much info to display would be nice.

We use a blog gadget for this on our home page. It requires writing the teaser separately from the event description.
For a simple list, as Evgeny says, the upcoming events gadget works, using a tag to specify which event(s) are included.
Another way is to use an Event Calendar gadget in list view, again with a tag to specify the events. This gives you the first few inches of the event description for a teaser, without having to write one.
