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.
Join the Wallace Stegner Center for this year’s Young Scholar with Dave Owen.
Professor Dave Owen teaches courses in environmental, natural resources, water, and administrative law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. His research focuses primarily on water resource management, and some recent projects have addressed policies to expedite dam removals and hydropower upgrades, the intersection of groundwater use regulation and the takings clause, implementation of the Endangered Species Act, and the real-world impact of California’s public trust doctrine. He also contributes frequently to the Environmental Law Prof Blog.
Join fellow solar advocates for a Rally in front of the Utah Public Service Commission as they decide whether or not to support more rooftop solar development in our state. Stand up for clean energy and clean air!
Directly following the Rally, head right upstairs in the Heber M. Wells building and sieze the opportunity to have your voice heard. Tell our Public Service Commissioners how much Utahns value rooftop solar for the betterment of the environment, the economy and our public health. Public testimony will begin at 5:00 pm.
Bring your bike to the museum for a two-hour-long bike tour, starting at UMOCA and ending at the Grateful Tomato Garden for the Tomato Sandwich Party, the Wasatch Community Garden’s kickoff event for Eat Local Week.
For those who don’t have a bike, don’t fret! SLC’s non-profit bike share, GREENbike, has a station right outside of the museum, with an all-day pass for $5.
Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!
Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.
