how to say "how did you find out about this..."
I know this seems a bit simple but I was having a conversation within someone in chinese and wanted to ask something like "how did you find out about this activity."
I couldn't think of good way to say that except for like "你怎么发现了这个活动“ does anyone know if this would work or not? thanks!

Well it would definitely be 是。。。的 pattern, as for 发现, I'm not sure if it suits. I might say 你（是）怎么知道这个活动的？ Could be wrong though.
Because the 是。。。的 pattern is used to ask about a method or a time period etc in the past, for example:
你们（是）怎么认识的？ - how do you guys know each other?
你（是）怎么找到我的？ - how did you find me?
