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.

Apr 21 all-day
Call for Artists-Star Wars / Heroes and Villains 2021 @ Urban Arts Gallery |  |  |

We’re looking for a diverse collection of fan art to fill our annual exhibit “Star Wars / Heroes and Villains”.

The deadline to submit is April 21st, 2021. We will notify you of our decision via email no later than April 28th, 2021.

If selected, your artwork will be due to the gallery, finished and ready to hang, by May 2nd. This exhibit will hang from May 4th – May 30th, 2021.

ABOUT THE THEME:

“Star Wars / Heroes and Villains” is a collection of fan art from the Star Wars universe and beyond. Fan art celebrating other pop/geek culture franchises is also acceptable. For example, Marvel/DC, Star Trek, Rick and Morty, Back to the Future, Aliens, etc. are all fair game for this show.

Submissions should be fan art, and should reference pop/geek culture in some way. A generic space painting, on the other hand, would not be appropriate for this exhibit.

Holi Festival of Colors Spanish Fork @ Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Spanish Fork
Sep 25 @ 10:00 am – Sep 26 @ 4:00 pm
Holi Festival of Colors Spanish Fork @ Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Spanish Fork |  |  |

World’s Greatest Chant & Dance Party: Interactive Bollywood & Bhakti Dance, Mantra Bands, Dj’s, Yoga, Cuisine, Crafts, Color Throws on the Hour, Free Hugs, Lotsa Love…

Holi is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion.

The Holi Festival takes its name from an evil witch who lived thousands of years ago. Her name was Holika. She had a boon not to be burned even if she stepped into fire. She misused this benediction to burn many babies by carrying them into fires. However, when she tried to do the same to a five year old Krishna devotee named Prahlad, she got burned instead, while Prahlad emerged from the fire unharmed. Prahlad\’s constant habit was to chant the names of God, Hare Krishna Hare Krshna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Thus taking shelter of the Lord through His Holy Names the Supreme protected him.

This year, realizing that Holi has developed a national following especially among college festival-goers, we are preparing more parking and more colors (by far) than ever before. The music, the dance, the worship, the facilities — everything is being upgraded.

Tickets and items purchased are available for pick-up at the event.

Unredeemed tickets purchased for previous Festivals of Colors that were postponed due to COVID-19 are redeemable at this event.

Kids 12 and under are FREE.
