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.

Kids Adventure Games @ Highline Lake State Park, Fruita, CO
Jun 4 – Jun 6 all-day
Kids Adventure Games @ Highline Lake State Park, Fruita, CO |  |  |

One of the summer’s most anticipated family events, the Kids Adventure Games (Kids AG), is heading to Fruita, CO June 4-6th. Considered to be the nation’s premier adventure race for kids ages six to 14, the race will feature teams of two athletes tackling a course with mountain biking, trekking, rope swings, mud pits, cargo nets, zip lines, water obstacles, a giant Slip ‘N Slide and more. A family event not to be missed, the Kids AG will offer hundreds of kids the thrill of adventure racing where they’ll challenge themselves physically, emotionally and end the race feeling a huge sense of accomplishment.

About the Kids Adventure Games:
Whereas most races allow parents to help and coach their kids, Kids AG mandates the course as a parent-free zone, keeping them on the sidelines as cheerleaders. According to KIds AG Co-Founder, international adventure racer and Race Director Billy Mattison, parents remain astounded at what their kids can accomplish. “Adventure racing is a thrilling sport,” said Mattison. “It combines physical and mental challenges, teamwork and good-natured competition – and just as importantly, it’s a lot of fun. We’re excited for our inaugural Desert Edition race where we’ll watch the kids grow by challenging themselves throughout the weekend.”

The Kids Adventure Games™ originated in Vail, Colo. seven years ago and now features eight races across the nation. The games in each city are tailored to the natural terrain of the area to maintain the authenticity and personality distinct to that location. It is the only race of its kind in the nation. It offers kids the thrill of adventure racing while enhancing teamwork skills, sportsmanship, and a healthy, active lifestyle.
