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.

Arts in the Parks with UMOCA’s Art Truck @ West Ogden Park

Arts in the Parks with UMOCA's Art Truck @ West Ogden Park |  |  |

Arts in the Parks is a free program that offers opportunities for children to explore visual and performing arts through hands-on activities. The program travels to six different Ogden city parks for one week at a time during the summer months. Attend Arts in the Parks and visit the UMOCA Art Truck, currently exhibiting Jaime Salvador Castillo and Michael Anthony García’s whereABOUTS.

Jaime Salvador Castillo and Michael Anthony García’s whereABOUTS is an immersive and interactive installation that investigates location, identity and community. Students learn about mapping as a way to understand and express relationships between identity and place. Then, they explore their own communities through creative map-making of their neighborhoods. The whereABOUTS installation aims to connect students from different communities around the state by providing opportunities for visitors to learn about experiences other than their own.

About the Art Truck:
The Art Truck is a traveling educational art exhibit that takes exciting and accessible contemporary art, created by leading local and national artists, directly to schools and community venues across the state. Each visit by the Art Truck includes the expertise of a trained museum educator who leads students through a meaningful exploration of the current exhibition.

To request a visit from the Art Truck, email Madeline Savarese at madeline.savarese@utahmoca.org or call 801-328-4201 x 110. For more information, please visit http://www.utahmoca.org/art-truck/.
