You might consider BFO, which covers processes and the things that
participate in them, and the relation ontology, which has relations
such as has_participant, which relate things to the processes they
participate in.

This would have the benefit of being compatible with a growing
collection of ontologies that use it as an upper level ontology.

For an example of an ontology that has a somewhat developed ontology
of events (related to biomedical investigations) see OBI
