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.


Strut Your Mutt 5K Walk- Best Friends Animal Society @ Liberty Park
Oct 24 all-day
Strut Your Mutt 5K Walk- Best Friends Animal Society @ Liberty Park

Add some excitement to your usual weekend plans with your dog, and do it for a great cause! At Strut Your Mutt, you can enjoy a leisurely community dog walk or a timed 5k run (with or without your dog), and then hang out at a festival for all things dog (and dog-lovers). This life-saving annual event, which includes doggie yoga, pet portraits, refreshments, music, contests, post-run pet massages and more, is for a great cause — ending the killing of pets in America’s shelters. As one of 12 events happening across the country, your local Strut Your Mutt event provides a platform for local rescues and shelters to raise money for providing critical funding for lifesaving adoption, spay/ neuter programs, and more.

Strut Your Mutt Festival, Dog Walk and 5K @ Liberty Park
Oct 24 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Strut Your Mutt Festival, Dog Walk and 5K @ Liberty Park | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Join us for our annual Strut Your Mutt dog walk, chip timed 5K run and festival for the whole family!

It’s a monumental year for Best Friends Strut Your Mutt in Salt Lake City. This will be our 20th event, bringing together animal lovers to strut for homeless pets! Each year, Salt Lake’s Strut Your Mutt gets bigger and better — and this year is no different. Although it will be hard to surpass the approximately 2,400 people and their 1,600 dogs who came out to strut last year. Together, we raised nearly $190,000. Think we can top that? Then get ready for Best Friends Animal Society’s 20th Strut Your Mutt in Salt Lake City.

Who: You and anyone you know with the swag to strut for homeless pets in Salt Lake City or around the nation
What: A leisurely fundraising dog walk and/or chip timed 5K run with (or without) your dog, followed by a doggie-themed festival that includes pet contests, free photos, doggie goodies, fun activities for the whole family. We’ll have live entertainment, a kid activity zone, food trucks, awards and prizes, and a beer garden!
