With this requirement it is not possible to do using workflow rule. Use this trigger,
trigger CreateEventFromContact on Contact (after insert) {
    List<Event> eventList = new List<Event>();
    for (Contact c : Trigger.new) {
        Event event = new Event(
            OwnerId = c.CreatedById,
            WhoId = c.Id,
            ActivityDateTime = c.StartDate__c,
            StartDateTime = c.StartDate__c,
            EndDateTime = c.EndDate__c,
            Subject = 'To Do',
            Location = c.Place__c,
            Type = c.Event_Type__c
            );
        eventList.add(event);
    }
    insert eventList;
}

You can write a trigger to achieve this requirement. However I would suggest to do this using a workflow.
Write the workflow on contact object with trigger condition, every time it is created. Add one action under it to create a task against the associated contact.
