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.
