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.

Heart & Soul Music Stroll @ Imperial Park

Heart & Soul Music Stroll @ Imperial Park | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Start “tuning up” for the Fifth Annual HEART & SOUL MUSIC STROLL, returning to the Sugar House neighborhood at Filmore and Atkin Streets (1530 E. 2800 S.) on Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 3 p.m. to dusk.

Over 30 FREE musical acts will be sharing the HEALING POWER OF MUSIC with the greater Salt Lake community, bringing their talents to the streets bordering the newly developed Imperial Park, playing from neighborhood porches and yards.

Throughout the rest of the year, these performers donate their time and talent to HEART AND SOUL, a local nonprofit organization that brings such performances to hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and other audiences who can’t come out for the Music Stroll. Last year, Heart and Soul provided nearly 900 shows from over 300 artists along the Wasatch Front.

Bring your friends and family to enjoy a Saturday afternoon strolling from house to house, yard to yard, band to band, through the tree-lined streets of this Sugar House neighborhood. Savor the music and hear the love. You can also savor the flavors from several local food trucks at the Stroll.

Streamlined Style for Contemporary Leather Bindings @ Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4 | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Free spots are limited; please apply using the link provided. The application deadline is May 24. Learn a variety of decorative techniques for use on leather bindings. These techniques require minimal equipment and modest leatherworking skill, and some can also be applied to cloth or paper. Demonstrated methods include: backpared onlays, inlaid lines, stamping texture into leather, feathered onlays, Lacunose (abstract sanded leather collage), craquele, various inlay techniques, laminating a paper illustration for use as an inlay, various methods of creating sculptural boards, transfer of computer-printed onlay shapes from paper to leather, and laser printing on leather. Students’ completed set of four goatskin plaquettes together with a detailed handout are valuable reference for future projects. See examples of the techniques covered in this workshop here. Note: This is not an entry-level leather-working course. Students should have some experience with edge-paring and forming leather corners.
