Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.  Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.

Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read  on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.

If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.


Rock-a-Thon for Reproductive Rights @ Urban Lounge
May 1 @ 8:00 pm
Rock-a-Thon for Reproductive Rights @ Urban Lounge |  |  |

Salt Lake City Democratic Socialists of America and Urban Lounge are teaming up to support the work of the National Network of Abortion Funds! Bring your dancing shoes, come hear some cool tunes, have a few drinks, and support us in supporting those who need help accessing their abortion rights!

Tessi Smith
Madge (DJing some awesome tunes)
DJ Nix Beat

Entry is FREE!

If you aren’t able to make it to the show to donate, click the link below to donate to the cause online!


Because of a lack of comprehensive healthcare coverage, often those with the least financial resources are shut out from getting the abortion access they need. Reproductive healthcare is stigmatized and withheld from communities historically affected by systemic racism, economic inequality, and gender injustice. The government not only doesn’t provide coverage of abortion, but is actively working to make it harder and more expensive. That’s why we’re lacing up our dancing shoes and supporting our community by redistributing small donations from those who can afford to give to those who need help bridging the gap to access their abortion rights. Strengthen the network and donate to the National Network of Abortion Funds Rock-a-Thon!

Fundraise for the National Network of Abortion Funds and join us in making abortion more than legal—but truly possible.
