Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered 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.

The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. 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.

We 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. 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.

NOTE:  approved events are typically posted to the Community Calendar within seven days of your submission.

Please submit requests at least 14 days before your event – listings read on-air are chosen at random, the week of the event.

Midvale Drive-In: Get Out @ Behind the Belgian Waffle & Omelet Inn
Oct 2 @ 7:30 pm
Midvale Drive-In: Get Out @ Behind the Belgian Waffle & Omelet Inn |  |  |

When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

Strut Your Mutt Salt Lake City @ Online event
Oct 24 all-day
Strut Your Mutt Salt Lake City @ Online event  |  |  |

As COVID -19 continues to bring uncertainty, Best Friends is taking every precaution to keep both people and pets healthy and safe. Because there’s no way to predict the full extent or impact of the virus’s spread, we’ve made the decision to cancel our live Strut Your Mutt event in Salt Lake City this year. But you can still step up to save lives from the comfort of your home. Strut Your Mutt Day is the virtual walk and fundraising event that since 2011 has been raising crucial funds to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities across the country.

When you register for Strut Your Mutt Day, you can virtually raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society or for the participating local network partner of your choice. It all culminates on Strut Your Mutt Day, October 24, when animal lovers across the country are encouraged to get outside and walk their dogs, stay in and snuggle their cats or donate to help pets in their communities.

Although we can’t be face-to-face, we’re going to have more fun that ever with a calendar chock-full of brand-new engaging events hosted virtually on social media. You’ll be able to join us for events like “pig yoga,” Advocacy Day, the Bow Wow Film Festival and much more. More announcements are on the way, so be sure to check the event calendar regularly throughout the season.

Though live events may not be happening, we can still make a huge difference for dogs and cats in shelters. Together, we can step up and Save Them All.
