I've been doing so digging and I don't have a clue what it would take to develop an event finder app. I'm not sure if I'd need to use an api or what.

Using the users current location and list current events close to the user. Say I'm located in atlanta and I want to know what's going on around town. An app for that.

For such an app you will need either an API provider which will let you search the events close to the user's location or you will have to build such an API yourself.

or if you have list of events you can sort them by distance to the user location, like using google maps, and use maximum distance to cut off events too far away.
